Distinctive nose of black fruits. Elegant, complex and well balanced, with a hint of cocoa in the long finish.
Our premier red, a Supertuscan aged 18 months in French oak barrels. A balanced tannin structure and good spicy aromatic tones, which espouse well the typical leather and earthy tones of the Sangiovese. Complex, profound, with a lively acidity. The label features MonteRosola’s magical door, placed amidst the oak trees next to the vineyard. It reads ”knock before you enter”, a call to pause and appreciate the beauty of the surroundings – and the greatness of the wine.
