Casa al Vento – Gaiole Toscane 2015 (87 tsomw points)
In the glass a ruby red color.
On the nose intense aromas of dark cherries, cinnamon with notes of leather, spices, clove and liquorice. This marriage of Sangiovese and Merlot is perfectly balanced.
On the palate good structure, soft in the mouth with lots of red fruit and freshness. Perfect for a warm summer night.
