A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Sangiovese that is unique and recognizable because it fully expresses the Montefili environment. Thanks to this vineyard's old vines and its aging in small wood, it unleashes structure and softness with great complexity, without sacrificing  the freshness given by the altitude and the galestro soil.

2016 vintage tasting notes from Gary Walsh, Winefront

'My word. While I’m not a big one for non-native grape varieties planted on Italian soil, I do have a soft spot for Merlot and Cabernet grown there. I liked this more than Ned Goodwin MW, who tells me I’m a fan because ‘I am old and English’.  Anyway, it included 20% Sangiovese, the rest is Cabernet Sauvignon. 

Blackcurrant, nutmeg, espresso, almost to violet perfume. Intense, pencil and shale, very mineral and fine, succulent melting tannin, dense, tight, but not clumsy, iron and ferrous feel, very long and precise to close. Made a big impression on me, for sure, so I nudged the score one higher. Marvellous.' - 96 points
