    The Sisters produce a very small amount of red wine for this blend of roughly equal parts Sangiovese and Ciliegiolo, plus a tip of newly planted Merlot in 2018 for the first time, from vines planted near their historical plots. Even with a 2 week maceration, this pours a pale, cloudy crimson orange hue, leading into a beguiling tapestry of black tea, wild plum, rock roses, and scrubby herbs, twinged with ample balsamic and rinsed with mineral salts. Tannins are nubby to negligible, and acidity shines subtlely.
