SummuS, Latin for “highest,” is a wine of towering elegance. The fruit and structure of the Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon are enhanced by the elegance and bouquet of the Syrah. The three varieties are vinified separately. After alcoholic fermentation, the individual wines are transferred to French oak barriques and aged separately for 12-14 months. They are then blended and aged in wood for an additional 10-12 months. Bottle-aging follows for at least 6 months.
Deep ruby red, with violet reflections. Enticing floral notes, followed by black fruit and spice. Well-structured, with black cherry, cassis, and vanilla notes.
