On the Apennine slopes that degrade in the plain of Lucca, a splendid terrace facing South-East at 250 meters above sea level .An acid sandstone flood on calcareous marl of Alberese del Paleocene, about 60 million years ago when mammals began to populate the earth. The Sangiovese have always been grown on these lands, together with other vines of the most disparate origins: Syrah, Merlot, Ciliegiolo, Canaiolo, Montepulciano, Barbara, Tazzelenghe and others.
The nose expresses elegance and great aromatic finesse. Fragrant aromas of ripe fruit, spicy and mineral notes, intense and persistent bouquet.
The attack on the palate is captivating, with a pleasant sweetness of the fruit, the structure is developed with a dense texture of tannins, ripe and soft, which ensure length and a delicious and pleasant aftertaste. A balanced wine of great class that evolves for twenty years.
