From the Tenuta Co d'Oricia website:  http://www.coldorcia.it
The name Gineprone refers to the aromatic herb called Juniper and reveals how this Chianti of the Sienese hills refers the consumer to all the herbs and spices typical of the Mediterranean undergrowth. Complex and full-bodied but also approachable and fruity, the Gineprone is the Montalcino version of the Chianti wine (DOCG) that has made Tuscany famous all over the world.
This wine is made from Sangiovese (90%), Cabernet sauvignon (10%) which is fermented on skins for 10 - 12 days in 150 hl steel tanks, specially designed to gently extract tannins and color. Ageing takes place in Slavonian and Allier oak barrels which are also used for Brunello and Riserva. Additional ageing for 4 months in bottle.
The colour is intense ruby red with pleasant aromas of ripe fruit, plum and oak spices.  The palate has good structure, full and balanced, with a long and pleasantly fruity aftertaste.
