Grape: Sangiovese 90% Cabernet Sauvignon 10%.

Aroma: Very complex with intense red berries fragrance where notes of cherry and plum stand out. Soft hints of spices, coffee, tobacco, and chocolate amplify the feelings.
Taste: Medium body, very persistent with sweet and soft tannins.
Behind the label: Arpagone's name refers to the main character of "the Miser" novel of Molière because when the vineyard was bought, it was arid and miser like him.
