The Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon were vinified and then aged separately in 500L French Tonneaux for 18 monts. The varieties were blended prior to bottling, and then further aged another 4 months to achieve coherence and harmony. The 2014 Madre is very quaffable. A lighter vintage, this expression has lots of strawberry, ripe raspberries, pomegranate and goji berry flavors. A versatile wine, this is the perfect accompaniment for grilled asparagus, salmon, spring vegetables, and goat cheese.
