Intense ruby red with reflections of violet. The sangiovese and Alicante contribute to the structure and complexity of the blend with spice and liquorice flavors. The Syrah and Carignan contribute a fresh dark berry component. The wine hints at a Southern Rhone style with black olive aromas, and ripe fruit.
Vinous 93 points - The estate’s 2008 Aragone, is exceptionally beautiful in this vintage. A wine that impresses for its depth and persistence, the 2008 is loaded with black fruit, smoke, melted road tar, leather and wild flowers. All the elements come together in a Maremma red endowed with serious power. Aragone remains one of the most intriguing wines in the southern part of Maremma. The use of Alicante, Syrah and Carignan in concert with Sangiovese gives the Aragone a distinct personality all its own.  (Aug 2013)

Wine maker notes
This distinctive wine, made in a region famous for Super-Tuscan blends with Bordeaux varieties, looks not to the Medoc, but to the Mediterranean. Indigenous Sangiovese is blended with Syrah, Alicante, and Carignan, creating a ”Super-Med” blend that brings together these noble grapes and highlights the heritage of Mediterranean winemaking. The name ”Aragone” refers to the Aragons of Spain, who together with the Medici family of Florence, dominated the region of Maremma in the 1500’s. The six-point star depicted on the label, represents an aerial view of ”Forte Stella,” which is located in Porto Ercole just south of Grossetto, built by the Spanish around 1550.
