Grandi Annate 2015 shows a beautiful bouquet, with notes of dill, licorice, cheroot and violet. The wine is rich, with silky tannins and is a typical expression of the terroir, mirroring the balance of a soil rich in clay, limestone and sand.

Tech sheets
The Grandi Annate is produced only in the very best vintages, when we are able to craft a wine with pure Sangiovese grapes, which stands out for character, body and ageing potential. The production philosophy of Grandi Annate is to enhance the peculiarities of our Sangiovese, while crafting a full-bodied, tightly woven wine with the stamina to refine for many years in the bottle.
