Paying homage to the great varieties of vine from the Rhône, Syrah and Grenache and proof that excellent qualities are also produced in southern Tuscany. Expressive, aromatic and yet distinctly elegant, smooth, these are the attributes of our second top-class cuvée. The grapes grow on one of our best slopes, all around a centuries-old cork oak close to the macchia shrubland whose typical aromas of lavender, rosemary and thyme are reflected in the wine. The cuvée from both kinds of Grenache - for freshness and elegance - and Syrah - for fruit, strength and body - makes this complex, deep-flavoured wine an exception in Tuscany.
"2010 yielded a sunny, vibrant and Mediterranean Tinata. The fragrances of the Mediterranean maquis meld with a varietal spiciness to yield a wine that is both powerful and sophisticated. It's the ideal companion to a plate of stuffed quail on a warm autumn day."
