"Made entirely with organically grown Sangiovese and aged in tonneaux, this has aromas of scorched earth, spiced plum, grilled herb and leather. The polished, enveloping palate doles out mature Marasca cherry, raspberry, licorice and tobacco while a hint of crushed mint provides back up. Velvety tannins give it structure and smooth texture while a note of blood orange lingers on the close. Drink through 2025."

"A really polished red with plums, orange peel, light chocolate and just a hint of dusty tannins. Medium to full body. Delicious finish. A savory red for now or later."
"Vigna Vecchia is a selection of the oldest Sangiovese grapes in our vineyards. It is harvested in the Poggia Alta, a vineyard set up in the 1960s on gravelly drainage soil, with acid pH and facing East.
Beautifully luminous wine of a light purple colour. The olfactory profile is dominated by mammola (violet) and rosa canina followed by fresh red fruit such as marasca cherry, red currant and pomegranate. In the mouth, the taste is sharp and fruity. The tannin flaunts the typical Sangiovese’s pungent feel. After swallowing, it reveals a long aftertaste, with strong saliva stimulation due to the acidity. The finish is tasty and mineral. It matches well red meat dishes, such as Chianina tagliata with Tuscan olive oil and flakes of parmesan cheese. It is also excellent with well-aged cheeses or sweet blue cheeses. This wine lends itself well to a very long ageing, between 15 and 20 years." - Winery
