(Tuscany) The wine has a beautiful intense ruby red color and nuances of garnet red, little transparency. The nose denotes a clean and prominent personality: intense, clean and well defined aromas of black cherry, plum jam, raspberry, blueberry which are pleasingly followed by aromas of cocoa, eucalyptus and vanilla. The mouth reveals a full body and intensity of flavors, powerful and prominent, with agreeable tannins well balanced by alcohol which is also present in good quantity. Excellent correspondence to the nose. The finish is persistent with clean and evident hints of black cherry, plum jam, blueberry and vanilla. A very well made wine. Ghiaie della Furba is produced in steel containers and is aged for 16 months in barrique followed by bottle aging for at least 6 months.
