Some of our earliest Sangioveses were blended with just a touch of Cabernet Sauvignon. We revisited this ‘Super Tuscan’ tradition in 2005 and struck a chord. A 50/50 blend brought out the best of both worlds. The tannin structure of the Cab balanced perfectly with the bright acidity of Sangiovese and the “Bello Rosso” was born. A nose of dried strawberries and cranberries with accents of mint reveals cassis, cinnamon and dusty raspberry on the palate. Lush tannins and bracing acidity frame the lengthy finish.
