Sangiovese Grosso 100% from the Val di Suga vineyards in Montalcino, in the three historic areas. It is a blend that brings together the three main locations with different geographical and climatic conditions. This pays off in the composition of these three wines, with a special equilibrium of each area’s characteristics—a unique balance of freshness and structure, fullness and elegance.
