After several years of testing the growing of non-traditional grape varietes, and then experiencing new blends, in 2003 we found the final "formula" for this wine. Beyond Sangiovese wines, the blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah in equal quantities is the best expression of the terroir at Fattoria di Basciano. Very structured and complex wine, it matches with red meats, stewed meats, game, roasted meats and aged cheeses perfectly. Deep ruby red colour. Very aromatic nose, showing plum, berry and well-integrated hints of vanilla. On the palate, it is ripe, full-bodied, with silky tannins and a long finish.

Wine SpectatorLovely aromas of violet, black currant and blackberry highlight this elegant, supple red. Vibrant and virtually seamless, though this should improve as the components integrate. Spice and mineral accents add depth and line the finish. Shows more finesse than power. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah. Best from 2018 through 2030. 2,000 cases made.
