The hot and dry 2012 vintage favoured the production of an intensely coloured, full-bodied Grifi. Ripe aromas of red and black berry fruit find depth in scents of sweet spices, toasted wood and Mediterranean undergrowth. The flavour is warm, dense and austere with lots of crunchy tannins, distinctive of a great vintage. The finish is long, warm and savoury, with a light, balsamic touch. A wine perfect for long ageing in the bottle.

The 2012 Grifi is a tasty blend of Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon in equal measure. The wine delivers a slightly evolved profile with robust and luscious fruit at its core. This is especially true in terms of the bouquet where the wine reveals earthy intensity backed by savory and leathery overtones. However, the wine is pleasingly elegant and finessed overall. When you dig a little deeper, you can taste some of the heat and the jammy fruit of the vintage. There is a distant point of sweetness on the finish.

Offers a core of pure cherry and blackberry, accented by tar, underbrush and leather flavors. Winds down, revealing a layer of strict tannins on the long finish. Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon.
