Made entirely with Sangiovese and without any added chemical sulfites, this wine leads off with earthy aromas of wet soil, leather, fragrant blue flower and red berries. The one-dimensional palate opens with sour cherry accented with a hint of cinnamon-spice alongside chewy but fleeting tannins. It's a bit diluted and finishes abruptly.
