A pure Sangiovese, this opens with varietal aromas including fragrant blue flowers, perfumed berries, tilled soil, forest floor and a whiff of cake spice. The structured, elegant palate delivers mature black cherry, clove, tobacco and licorice alongside a backbone of firm, fine-grained tannins. Give it time to fully develop. Drink 2017–2023.
