From this descendant of the founder of Brunello comes this fabulous Super-Tuscan made from Sangiovese, Cabernet and Merlot aged in French oak for 24 months. Schidione is built to age for many years. At the moment, it still retains the primary fruit of ripe cherry and blackberry with spice and vanilla from the oak, supported by firm tannins and balanced by good acidity. With several years in the cellar, the tannins and acidity will soften and the fruit and wood components become seemlessly integrated to produce an ethereal wine--a model for Tuscan Sangiovese. Drink now or cellar for up to 20 years.
