Area of Production:

Toscana IGT wines can be made in any village in any of Tuscany’s 10 provinces.
Merlot – Sangiovese wines are made from two grape varieties extensively grown and widely appreciated in Italy. Sangiovese is internationally renowned for its well-balanced structure and savory flavors.
Sangiovese almost always plays the dominant role in the blend, with Merlot used to soften the wine’s texture and make it more approachable in its youth. Merlot also adds fruitiness and juiciness to the blend, complementing Sangiovese’s more savory and herbaceous qualities.
