(From 2009 Vintage) A dark appearance segues to brooding aromas of licorice, tar, cherry and spice that wrap around the long, polished finish.
Bright, deep red. Complex nose combines plum, currant, cherry, tobacco and nutty oak. Juicy and penetrating, with lovely thrust and inner-mouth floral character, accentuated by bright but integrated acidity. Classic sangiovese with real clarity and grip, not to mention energy in the mouth. Finishes firmly tannic and very long. Perfect for grilled or roasted red meats as well as stewed duck and guinea fowl.
