Made entirely with Sangiovese, this structured wine opens with fruit and spice aromas of blackberry, raspberry, white pepper and clove alongside hints of leather and tar. The juicy palate delivers a core of vibrant black cherry accented with white pepper and cinnamon-spice. Bracing but refined tannins carry through to the long finish. Give this time to fully develop complexity. Drink 2015–2022.
