Grifi Toscana IGT

Grifi Toscana IGT - Cover

Description

T his risk-rewarding wine is for bullish producers only. In fact in 2014 Grifi was not produced due to adverse climate conditions. An incredible blend where Sangiovese’s freshness prefectly merges with the Cabernet Sauvignon’s backbone. Another fine example of a great blend for ageing.
