Toscana I.G.T. 2020

This risk-rewarding wine is for bullish producers only. In fact in 2014 Grifi was not produced due to adverse climate conditions. An incredible blend where Sangiovese’s freshness perfectly merges with the Cabernet Sauvignon’s backbone. Another fine example of a great blend for ageing.

The blending of two such different personalities as Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon come together to give this wine its unique character. Dark ruby red in colour with purple hues. The nose opens with hints of blueberries, blackberries and incense, and moves on to sandalwood, graphite and vanilla nuances. In the mouth it is dense and complex with hints of plum and blueberry. It then evolves into a balsamic and spicy explosion supported by good acidity. The lively tannin on the whole palate accompanies the savoury and persistent finish.
