Cabernet IGT Toscana rosso
Tenuta Maria Teresa, Colline Lucchesi
Cabernet Sauvignon and Franc with one-third of Syrah
bright, intense ruby red.
The aromas are already complex, the fruity notes of blueberry are evident, as are the spicy and slightly leathery ones, with hints of graphite in the background.
Full and soft on the palate with good body and silky, succulent tannins and a great balance of all components. Long and very fine finish.
