Brunello di Montalcino: Intense ruby red in color with garnet reflections. Aromas of violets and vanilla, with hints of licorice. Velvety palate, with tart-cherry flavors and traces of spice. Well-structured with supple tannins, superb concentration, and good acidity. Persistent finish.





SummuS: Deep ruby red, with violet reflections. Enticing floral notes, followed by black fruit and spice. Well-structured, with black cherry, cassis, and vanilla notes.



Cum Laude: Ruby red, intense, and very deep. Complex, with notes of blackberries, plum jam, cherries, with aromas of licorice, black olives, and pipe tobacco. Full bodied, dense tannins, round, and soft. Can benefit from moderate aging, but already very enjoyable upon release.
