This is a splendid blend of Sangiovese, Cabernet and Merlot grown in the vineyards of Tenuta Podernovo, which lies in the heart of the hills near Pisa and is owned by the Lunelli family. The property is currently being converted to organic farming methods. It has a luminous ruby red colour. The nose reveals elegant notes of morello cherries and fruit in brandy, as well as herbal and mineral tones. A well-structured yet supple wine that has an attractive roundness, due to its well-modulated and refined tannins. Overall, it is very elegant, with its well-balanced tanginess and mellow finish suade.
