The new owners of this revamped estate are guided by famed Sangiovese expert Maurizio Castelli whose experience shines through in this classically crafted Brunello. It opens with aromas of plum cake, clove, licorice and hints of toast and espresso. The palate offers fleshy black cherry layered with mocha, tobacco, black pepper and Mediterranean herbs alongside velvety tannins. Drink 2016–2021.
