This is a certified organic wine made with 100% Sangiovese." --The Wine Advocate

Just as in the 12th Century, the village itself still plays an essential role in our wine and oil production. The interiors of its ancient houses, churches, underground passages and deconsecrated churches have been discreetly converted into wine cellars, bottling plants and olive presses up to the ceiling in the latest equipment and all connected by an amazing underground "wineduct."

Thick smoke and toasted espresso notes on the nose. Mineral notes of smoked blackberry and black cherry fruit, tart acidity and creamy delicate chocolate and sweet coffee notes towards the finish with cinnamon baking spice. Approachable and easy drinking.
