Good aromas of blackberry and pretty oak. Full-bodied, with fine tannins and a fresh finish.

    violets and sweet dark berries with hints of clove. to taste mouthwatering sweet raspberry syrup. highbury say: Description Made from 100% Sangiovese. Shows excellent color and richness for a Sangiovese, with aromas of sultana, coffee, toasty oak and vanilla bean. Full-bodied, with masses of fruit and chewy tannins. The concentration and depth of fruit leave me speechless. A blockbuster. Best after 2014." 99 Points, Wine Spectator.
