A deep garnet red wine that tastes of black cherries, chocolate, and crushed berries. This wine exhibits rich oak scents followed by a gorgeous array of ripe and juicy fruits.
Winemaker's Notes: The Sangiovese and the Merlot of which this wine is composed of, hail from Umbria. Umbria is a small region in Central Italy which is rich in historic sites, beautiful art work, and hillside vineyards known for their yields of superb quality grapes. This blend gave birth to a vigorous wine so like the region it hails from. Garnet red in color, possessing an intense aroma and persistent taste; this red wine is full of character and is optimal for those special moments which call for a great wine, but is also delightful to drink at any occasion.
