When owner Fabrizio Bianchi purchased this ancient estate in 1962, he began a transformation that continues to this day. The vineyards have all been revitalized and the winemaking is modern and up-to-date. Balsamic aromas and flavors of juniper, rosemary, and sage give way to plum, cherry, and iron notes in this dry, powerful red. The lasting impression is of ripe fruit, showing some heat in the balance.
