The full potential of the Sangiovese grape finds new expression in a wine inspired by the great traditions of its place of origin.
‘Cultus Boni’ brings together the quality of the Sangiovese grape, its dominant component (80%), with the expressiveness of the Colorino, Ciliegiolo and other traditional complementary varieties.
The uncertain spring has led to a reduction of yields. The favorable temperatures in July and September favored a perfect maturation of the grapes. Lower yields but good quality
Harvest period: 16th September - 11th October
Intense ruby red color, elegant balsamic notes mixed with flower, cherry, liquorice and chocolate. Warm on the palate, but extremely pleasant, with great harmony between its full mouthfeel and its fresh finish.
