Wine Enthusiast - "Made with 85% Sangiovese, 5% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot and 5% Alicante, this easygoing wine opens with aromas of blackberry and a hint of graphite. The simple fruity palate delivers red plum and a hint of cedar alongside smooth tannins. Enjoy soon."
A single owner, a single winemaker, three cellars in the three principal Tuscan wine making areas, a terrific synergy between Elisabetta Gnudi Angelini's properties, but no common wine. To answer this lack, a new Sangiovese IGT made from grapes from the three estates, Caparzo, Borgo Scopeto and Doga delle Clavule. The family crest works surprisingly well to illustrate the concept: the shield bears three roses that represent the three estates.
