Tasting notes
Intense ruby red. Aromatic, with scents of ripe cherries, spice and chocolate ------------------------------------------ A rich, balanced red. Soft and well-structured with flavors of wild berries, spice and herbs

 Wine Advocate 88 points (Jun 2012)
The 2010 Maremma Toscana Serrata is quite pretty. Bright red fruit, flowers, spices and licorice jump from the glass as this delicate, floral Sangiovese/Alicante blend shows off its considerable charm. If served slightly chilled, the Serrata would make a delicious warm weather red. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2014.

Wine maker notes
The grapes were hand-harvested from September 12 (Sangiovese) and September 1 (Alicante). The grapes underwent a temperature-controlled fermentation in stainless steel tanks at 82-86˚F for 7-14 days and maceration for 14-16 days at 68-75˚F.
