Sancta Catharina combines the drinkability of the typical Sangiovese of Montepulciano with the fruitiness of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. We have created this wine with the aim of bringing out the potential of the Montepulciano area: soil that is perfect for Sangiovese, and at the same time capable of enhancing other varieties.

TASTING NOTES
Complex, fragrant wine, rich in aromas of black fruit, such as blueberry and blackberry jam. It is balsamic and floral (violet), well balanced with some spicy hints of tobacco, vanilla and black pepper. Full-bodied, with velvety, compact tannins and long ageing potential. It goes well with stewed game and mature cheeses.
