Pale cream rose. One of the more interesting wines in this year's tasting, the Belguardo reveals a floral perfume with hints of toast and smoke that are mirrored on the palate. Interesting, complex and very dry with minerals and light fruit notes. Would be great with roasted vegetables. A 50/50 blend of Sangiovese and Syrah from vineyards in the Maremma.

DescriptionThe pioneering Mazzei family, owners of Chianti Classicos highly esteemed Castello di Fonterutoli, took the helm at the Belguardo estate in Maremma, Tuscany in the 1990s after recognizing the potential for superb quality winemaking in the local terroir. In the years since, the Mazzei family has established a name for Belguardo among the top producers in this exciting, fast emerging wine region. Belguardo's logo, fashioned after a geometrical symbol sketched by Leonardo da Vinci, represents a union between precision and perspective. It is emblematic of the Mazzeis' commitment to combining exceptional growing conditions with centuries of winemaking expertise to yield concentrated, complex wines that are extraordinarily elegant and aromatic.
