Analysis

Hailing from Tuscany you might guess that this wine has some Sangiovese and it does, 85% to be exact. It's fresh and vibrant and surely a wine to drink up this summer to fall. It's fermented and rested in stainless steel to preserve the fresh fruit character.

How to Enjoy

Serve well chilled at your summer BBQ or pre-dinner where its tart, vibrant flavors and natural acidity will get the appetite awake.
