A gentle Sangiovese based blend with soft red fruits, herbal notes, and a touch of spice. Though the wine's roots run deep in the region's history and the blend is based on Tuscany's most representative grape, Sangiovese (60%), 385 is given a more "modern" cut with the addition of Merlot (20%), Ciliegiolo (10%) and Syrah (10%).
An unforgiving, powerfully structured wine with fabulous grilled-meat, granite, dried-berry and flower-petal character. Full-bodied, chewy and intense. Great structure. Extremely long and intense. Sexy austerity. Gets the juices going.
On the nose, pronounced notes of cedar, vanilla, some banana and pineapple, and subtle yeasty notes. On the palate it shows soft, round texture, with interesting interplay of pleasant acidity and fresh fruit. The wine rests for 12 months sur lie and then maturesfor a further 6 months in new oak. Sensational! A jewel of a wine.
Vibrant and loaded with finesse, this blend of 80% Sangiovese, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Cabernet Franc opens with enticing scents of red woodland berry, new leather, Asian spice and a touch of menthol. The youthful palate delivers red currant, wild cherry, star anise and clove alongside a backbone of firm acidity and polished, tightly wound tannins.
