This classic red is a blend of organic sites, building complexity and elegance with the particularities of each vineyard. Timid at first, begging for time in the glass (or a long decant), it slowly unfurls to reveal an ethereal floral bouquet with red fruit and hints of iron. Full-bodied and creamy in the mouth, the flavors make good on the promise in the aromas with more roses, cherries and strawberries wrapped in a dense structure. Chiara Boschis has proven to be a daring and provocative winemaker, eschewing her family’s centuries of tradition to make thrilling wines entirely in her own style.

Gorgeous aromas of dried flowers and strawberries with some cherries and hints of iron. Full-bodied. Chewy and creamy-textured at the same time. Attractive berry and walnut aftertaste. From organically grown grapes.
