Wine Description

(2011 Vintage) This wine is made from 100% Sangiovese grown in vineyards near the historic communes of Montecchio and Orvieto. The winemaking landscape here is characterized by picturesque lakes, rolling hills, and sedimentary clay soils. The resulting wine is accessible and well-rounded—a distinct and delicious expression of Umbrian terroir.

    (2007 Vintage) "The 2007 Sangiovese is less convincing in its balance. It, too, is made in a rich, concentrated style, yet some uncharacteristic green notes lurk beneath. Impressive as this wine is for the sheer depth of its fruit, there isn’t a lot of varietal character here. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2010."
