Rosso Toscano IGT "Chiostro di Venere"
CHIOSTRO DI VENERE features a prevalence of Cabernet Sauvignon, completed with Sangiovese, to enhance the local Tuscan character. A very full wine with an imposing structure, characterised by an excellent balance in the mouth, it floods the palate with rare elegance. On the nose, vanilla is followed by leather, giving way to fruits of the forest, like blackcurrants and blackberries. Its taste is deep, broadly dense and definitely very persistent in an inviting finish. A great Tuscan with an adventurous spirit.
