Elegant wine with very interesting complexity and structure. The colour is intense and bright red. The aroma reminds of red fruits:both sweet and sour cherries, over a spicy and balsamic background. During the bottle agening the wine acquires a precious elegance and a tasty persuasiveness.

Vinification: 95% Sangiovese and 5% Canaiolo grapes are hand harvested from the Poggio a Frati Single Vineyard. Maceration without stalks is performed at a controlled temperature of 28°C for 10-12 days. Malolactic fermentation occurs in steel vats. Maturation of at least 15 months follows, managed partly in oak casks and partly in new, first-passage tonneaux. The wine is blended in stainless steel vats. Poggio a Frati is aged in bottle for at least 12 months.
