Made entirely from Sangiovese, this opens with enticing aromas of iris, black-skinned berry and Mediterranean herb. The structured, savoury palale offers juicy wild cherry, star anise and black pepper alongside fine-grained tannins. Drink through 2025. KEIRIN O'KEEFE
Deep ruby red colour, with precious maroon hues. The Perfume: it's complex, with fruity notes that evolve into an intersting bouquet of spices, from vanilla to pepper. An expressive, complex and intriguing wine that shows amazing balance, with a long and satisfying ending.
The grapes are harvested at perfect maturity and maceration lasts for 40 days. Madonnino Del Piave is aged for 42 months, of which 24 are in wood, well over the 30 months considered by the exisitng legislation.
