Additional Details editIntense ruby red with violet nuances. Elegant and complex, it recalls sour cherries and violets, with refined woody notes of cocoa and coffee. Warm and velvety, with solid structure and complex, the wine has slightly balsamic fruitiness, however it is lively and pleasantly fresh with balanced acidity, intriguing tannins, and a finish that is long, with spicy closing notes.

"Tarry smoke and tea leaf notes lead the way in this savory, medium- to full-bodied red, which layers firm, well-knit tannins with flavors of dried cherry, iron and anise. Chewy finish. Best from 2021 through 2028. 1,666 cases made, 125 cases imported."

"Made entirely with Sangiovese, this elegant red has aromas of underbrush, moist earth, hazelnut and French oak. On the taut palate, firm, fine-grained tannins and fresh acidity accompany cassis, espresso, vanilla and coconut before a rather drying finish. Give it a few more years to unwind and fully come together. Drink after 2023." November 1st, 2019 Issue.

"Plenty of dried redcurrants, fresher rose petals, vanilla, red plums and tobacco. Full-bodied with real density but energy on the palate, weaving a ton of dried red fruit through a tapestry of dusty tannins and driven acidity. Drink in 2021."
