Description: From a selection of the best grapes from the single vineyard Istine located in Radda in Chianti, on one of the highest vineyards in the region.

"Enticing aromas of iris, red berry and pine forest are front and center on this stunning red. Made with organically grown Sangiovese, the structured palate is surprisingly fresh for the hot vintage, offering succulent red cherry, raspberry jam, clove and cinnamon alongside fine-grained tannins and tangy acidity. Drink 2021–2029." - Wine Enthusiast
