Passito wine from Sangiovese grapes
Balanced, full, persistent. A special passito with an intense and dense dark garnet colour.
On the nose, it reveals sweet memories of the autumn season. It smells of chestnut, caramelized fig and black olives. The flavour is sweet, wise, essential.
A perfect balance between sweetness and acidity. Excellent to accompany desserts of fruit, chocolate and tarts. Expect applause at the end of a meal.
