Tasting Notes

Intense and brilliant ruby red. This wine proves its richness through the slow movement of the wine rotating in the glass. Fine, complex, full of hints of ripe red fruits, and spices that come from the barrel ageing period. Of great structure, full, harmonious, and long lasting.Serve with noble meats (such as the fiorentina steak) and aged cheeses. Well matched also with Indian and Chinese spicy and tasty dishes.

"Translated as "the dragon and the 8 doves," the 2015 Il Drago e le 8 Colombe is an IGT Toscana blend of 60% Sangiovese, 20% Merlot and 20% Sagrantino. The eight doves refer to the all-female staff at the Donatella Cinelli Colombini winery, and the dragon is Donatella's husband Carlo Gardini. I taste the hearty Sagrantino grape first both in terms the boldness of the bouquet and that slight tannic crunch you get in the mouth. The Merlot serves to soften it up, and the Sangiovese adds freshness and the pretty berry aromas that define the bouquet. This Tuscan red has the heft and substance to pair with grilled steak."
