97% Sangiovese, 3% Canaiolo
Aged 15-18 months in 50’hl Slovenian oak casks with a minimum of 6 months bottle maturity prior to release. ‘Croce’ means cross, from an ancient crucifix standing in the Radda-in-Chianti vineyard. 92/100 Robert Parker.
Deep ruby red with purple reflections, intense bouquet of fruit and violet leads to round full fruit flavours followed well balanced savoury characters, fine‐tuned by ageing in traditional casks. A long, consistent dry finish.
