55% Cabernet Franc, 27% Merlot, 17% Cabernet Sauvignon, 1% Petit Verdot
A grape not normally associated with the mainstay of Italian wine, this bottle represents the dizzying heights that the Cabernet Franc grape can reach when made by a truly great producer. A beautifully hedonistic nose displaying Morello cherries, some roasted herbs and exotic spice notes - who needs a ¿Yuletide¿ candle when this wine imparts such an exquisite Christmas bouquet. Tremendously complex even at this early juncture, balanced with an impressive structure and a warm lingering finish. The cold Winter nights were made for this wine.
