Wine.comThe 1998 Sangiovese is both elegant and powerful. It is like Sophia Loren in an Armani suit. Darkly hued, extracted wine, with loads of black cherry, plum and violets and milk chocolate. The Allier and Troncais forest oak barrels add toasty, hazelnut and vanilla aromas to the wine. This wine has a smooth entry of berry fruit, a full mid-palate, and a jammy, creamy finish that befits a varietally true Sangiovese.
