An intense ruby red in color, the wine shows aromas both of fruit and the typical sensations of oak, which fuse harmonically and offer as well balsamic and graphite notes on the nose. The palate is rich, with supple and balanced tannins along with the vibrant freshness typical of Sangiovese. The finish and aftertaste are of notable persistence and repeat the notes of berry fruit first felt on the nose.

"Aromas of violets, blueberries and hints of minerals. Walnut shell, too. Full body, chewy tannins and a savory finish. Brilliant and structured. Big wine."

"Flavors of baked plum and bruised cherry reflect the vintage’s hot and dry conditions in this wine. Those fruit flavors surround a core of concentrated dried herbs, with notes of bay leaf and oregano lending savor to the rich fruit flavors. The wine rested in a mix of Hungarian oak barriques and tonneaux for 18 months, picking up flavors of bitter chocolate and sweet spice that resonate on the finis"

Juicy and polished, this opens with aromas that recall ripe plum, dark berry, mocha, Asian spice and a hint of menthol. The full-bodied palate doles out ripe black cherry, chopped mint, anise and a hint of tobacco alongside velvety tannins that lend finesse and structure. Drink through 2021.
