Classic Sangiovese aromas of red berry, culinary spice, crushed herb, tobacco and a whiff of new leather float from the glass. The juicy full-bodied palate delivers fleshy wild cherry, raspberry compote, vanilla and star anise framed in firm, refined tannins. Fresh acidity lends balance. Drink 2019–2027.
