Available for:
Intense ruby red in colour. The nose exhibits lovely fresh, crunchy fruit, enriched with mineral and spicy notes. The palate is medium bodied with hints of red berries. The elegant, silky tannins are wholly enveloping and velvety-soft. The finish is pristine, clean, and vivacious. It pairs effortlessly with a wide range of dishes such as grilled meats - especially Chianina beef - spit-roasts, ossobuco, charcuterie of wild boar, medium-matured and fully-matured pecorino cheese, and smoked ricotta. It is enhanced with pasta prepared with white meat ragout, pappardelle with hare.

Ripe and silky, this red exhibits plum, fruitcake, earth and tobacco flavors. It's harmonious and picks up enough structure to uplift the lingering finish. Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Drink now through 2024. 6,000 cases made, 500 cases imported.

The 2017 Il Seggio is juicy and immediate. Crushed flowers, bright red berry fruit, spice and blood orange all resonate in the glass. There is a good bit of brightness to play off all that natural Bolgheri richness in this Merlot-based blend.

This blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot carries aromas of black-skinned berry, Mediterranean brush and leather. The structured palate features blackberry jam, licorice and mocha alongside polished tannins.
