Tuscan Red IGT (Typical Geographical Indication) wine and jewel in the company’s crown, made from Sangiovese grapes with a small percentage of Merlot.

The red wine obtained is characterized by an intense aroma, softened by hints of precious wood, with a very fine ruby red colour. The palate is balanced with a delicate aftertaste of red fruits.
