An intense ruby red in color, the wine shows aromas of ripe fruit, at times of maximum ripeness, but with a total respect for the grape variety and an excellently maintained freshness. The notes of the fruit and of the oak fuse in harmonious balance with minty balsamic notes and suggestions of graphite. The rich palate, with supple and balanced tannins, is vibrant and fully expressive of Sangiovese. The length, persistence, and aftertaste are of notable importance and echo the fruit first felt on the nose.

Wine EnthusiastThis opens with subtle aromas of dark berry, tobacco and exotic spice. The vibrant palate is more expressive, delivering a core of juicy black cherry accented by notes of raspberry, white pepper, vanilla, licorice and savory herb. This finessed wine is still young, but structured with tightly knit, yet fine-grained tannins. Drink 2016-2025.

Wine SpectatorLeather and licorice notes frame a core of cherry in this rich, dense red. Graphite, tobacco and smoke notes add interest as this unwinds on the long, savory aftertaste. Balanced, with a firm, minerally finish. Drink now through 2023.
