Made with 100% Sagrantino, this presents aromas of grilled sage, espresso, blue flower and blackberry. On the palate, mature plum and a confectionary note back up oak-driven sensations of coconut, vanilla and mocha. It's already evolved and rather shy on freshness, with muted, fleeting tannins. Drink through 2016.
