James Suckling 92
" A pretty red with dark berry, chocolate and terracotta character. Medium to full body, round and juicy tannins and a flavorful finish. Drink or hold. "

" An elegant style, offering black cherry, blackberry, iron and earth flavors, with a hint of wild herbs. The vibrant structure keeps this focused and drives the lingering finish. "
" This wine, with its full, balanced flavour, bears honest testimony to its territory and ancient tradition. The moderate use of the wood, the use of large casks, according to the past experience, allows the wine to preserve the most natural characteristics of the Sangiovese grape, bringing them into harmony: fruitiness, freshness and tannin.
Blend: 90% Sangiovese, 5% Merlot, 5% Colorino " ~ Winery notes

"THE QUALITY OF WINE IS BORN IN THE VINE"
The castle vineyards snake through the clay and limestone rock-filled soil of the estate.
It is the alliance between the land and the vine that makes the difference: each vine has its own characteristics, requirements and reaction, important to be thoroughly familiar with both the grape and the land to know how to manage.
The analysis of the earth, the choice of the rootstocks and the selection of the clones, as well the pruning back and the careful, skillful handling of the vine throughout its productive cycle, makes it possible to obtain a healthy grape with uniform ripening: the quality of the grapes is at the heart of a good wine.
