TRE stands for the three grape varieties, Sangiovese, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, and for our three Tuscan estates - the basis for this wine. The wine is dominated by delicious red fruit flavors; it is really juicy and always ready to drink. It’s an elegant and well-structured medium-bodied wine which matures for one year in French tonneaux and cement.
