This is a product of the Frescobaldi wine empire. Mostly sangiovese, with some colorino, malvasia nera, cabernet sauvignon and merlot. Nose of black cherries, decayed flowers, balsamic and earth. Medium body, 13% abv. Intense flavors of cherries, tobacco, bitter orange, leather and earth. High pitch acidity. Oak treatment is very subdued, the wine is aged in second and third use barrels. A touch tannic. Much better than the last bottle I had about a year ago, unfortunately this was my last one. Medium finish. Excellent match for manicotti filled with ricotta, swiss chard and caramelized onions, topped with tomato sauce.
