A blend of 95% Sangiovese and 5% Ancellotta, this opens with aromas of violet, black-skinned berry and cooking spice. The fresh, savory palate offers juicy black cherry, clove, white pepper and a hint of aromatic herb. It's balanced, with fine-grained tannins, lively acidity and good mid-term aging potential. Drink through 2024.
