S.J. Rosso di Toscana IGT
The Super Tuscan of the range, S.J. is “a variation based on Sangiovese.” It is a blend of mostly Sangiovese, accented by Merlot. It ages in French oak tonneaux, which offers the blend softness and preserves the quality and freshness inherent in Sangiovese. Harvested in the earliest days of fall, the grapes macerate for eighteen days before aging in stainless steel and in Allier oak tonneaux.
