"This gorgeous blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot offers beautiful intensity and impressive complexity. Aromas here include black cherry, exotic spice, leather, fine tobacco and loads of plush, ripe fruit. It's a smooth velvety wine but the tannic backbone gives it lift and staying power." (10/11)

Product Description:

WINE:
"Deeply intense purple color. Nose of a classic Cabernet with cherries and currant. Big wine with lots of up front tannins, fruit is soft and subtle. It shows wonderful development potential for long term aging." -Winery

WINERY:
"In 1995 we started to restore an old Estate called 'Scopicci' situated in the north of Tuscany. In the first time we renewed the vineyards under the supervision of our oenologist and agronomist Dr. Stefano Chioccioli."

"To obtain a great quality of the grapes the new vineyards are designed to perform a low production, our target is to produce less than 1 kilogram of grapes per plant. The total Estate extension is of 35 hectares circa and in this moment we led 15 hectares of red grapes vineyard." -Winery
