Expert Reviews

Some dried fruit with strawberry and lemon rind on the nose and palate. Medium to full body. Tangy tannins. Pèppoli is always excellent." Rating 92 - James Suckling 2015

"You’ll find aromas of violet, iris, red berry and baking spice on this savory blend of 90% Sangiovese, Merlot and Syrah. The vibrant palate doles out wild cherry, crushed raspberry, cinnamon and a hint of tobacco alongside polished tannins and bright acidity." Rating 89 - Wine Enthusiast 2015

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

An intense ruby red colour

Aroma

The nose of the wine is characterized by aromas of cherries, with the supplementary notes of violets, characteristics of Sangiovese along with spice and vanilla.

Palate

On the palate, the wine is savoury and balanced with the crisp acidity of this variety and sweet flavours. The tannins are rather supple and the finish and aftertaste show the fruit and spice which develop during the aging period. On the whole, the wine is long and pleasurable.
