Ruby red colour with a restrained, elegant nose. Perfumes of dark cherry and liquorice give way to spice and plums on the palate. Rounded tannins from the Sangiovese are lifted by the cassis concentration of the Cabernet and melt into a long, perfumed finish.
Summer conditions were very favourable in 2007, producing excellent, clean fruit harvested at ideal maturity. June and July were hot months, but rain fell in the second half of August, helping swell the berries. September was sunny, ensuring the Sangiovese grapes were harvested under ideal conditions. The Cabernet Sauvignon was harvested in early October, although interupted by a few showers, this had no effect on the quality of the grapes, due to the thickness of the skins. Harvest concluded on 10th October.
