CHIRONE 2011

IGT Rosso Toscana, Italia

70% Sangiovese | 25% Cabernet Sauvignon | 5% Merlot

The Chirone 2011 is a rich yet structured and elegant IGT with delightful tannin and deep colour. It has blackberries on the nose with a cherry note. A mouthful of flavour beguiles the senses, then the long finish leaves you wanting more. A juicy wine which still retains its authentic terroir character.
