(From 2010 Vintage) Hallmark Sangiovese aromas of blue flowers, woodland berries, underbrush, leather and spice take center stage in this stunning wine. The palate delivers succulent black cherry flavor accented by black pepper, cinnamon, mint and sage, with bracing yet ripe tannins.
The`08 is classically styled with focused tannins, and acidity pronouncing the aromas of tobacco, pie cherry, spice and leather. Powerfully graceful.

Decanter(From 1999 Vintage) Rating: 4/5 - As reviewed by Decanter. Mid-ruby colour, with slightly acetic, but not unpleasant aroma. Lovely balance of sour cherry fruit on the palate with dry Sangiovese tannins and crisp acidity. Classical, classy Chianti.
