Tasting notes

Delicate ruby red color. Complex nose, elegant, subtle and persistent. Aromas of violets, iris, mature red fruits and pepper, with notes of white chocolate. Velvety mouthfeel, full and warm, slightly savory, with soft tannins. Long and persistent aftertaste, expressing all the personality of the Brolio Sangiovese grape.
