The first Haiku vintage was in 2009 and the wine is a blend of 3 varieties: 50% Sangiovese, and 25% each of Cabernet Franc and Merlot. During the planting of the second section of the Montebuoni vineyard, completed in 2001, it was decided to experiment with the renowned International variety, Cabernet Franc, which Ama had never used.

Colour

Bouquet

A woodsy fruitiness hinting mainly at blackberry; the spice shows touches of ripe pepper, green peppercorns, nutmeg, and sandalwood. Balsamic, almost mentholated nuances.

Flavour

Rich, muscular, elegant, velvety, and lingering.
