This is pure Sangiovese, from the estate vineyard. This captures the varietal character nicely, with very pretty cherry and cranberry fruit, high acids, and a bright, accessible style. It tastes like young vines, but shows enormous potential, with a pleasing earthiness to the finish. The first Sangio from Barrister.
