Grandi Annate

Toscana I.G.T. Sangiovese


T he Grandi Annate is only produced during the best vintages. The philosophy behind this wine is to highlight the best traits of Sangiovese from Tuscany. This wine is a keeper. Lay it down, wait and enjoy it later due to its fantastic ageing potential.
The wine shows a beautiful bouquet, with notes of dill, licorice, cheroot and violet. The wine is rich, with silky tannins and is a typical expression of the terroir, mirroring the balance of a soil rich in clay, limestone and sand.
