Winemaker Notes: If you are looking for a typical representation of a Tuscan wine capable of expressing the territory that it comes from, this wine, with a strong character and intense flavors, will not disappoint you!
Food Pairing: Pair with roasted meat, game and aged cheese. Please serve in balloon shaped wine goblets to do it justice.
Other Notes: Cantine Ravazzi were founded by grandfather Enio in 1956. Since then the Ravazzi Cellars have conquered the territory between Umbria and Tuscany as a synonym of genuineness. In the 60s and 70s they represented the good Tuscan wine to accompany traditional Senese dishes and more.
