(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.
Complex aromas, redolent of sweet violets and wild red berry fruit. Full-bodied with luscious tannins are enriched by just a hint of toasty oak.
Such a rich nose of cherry, plum, anise and tobacco with a very evocative floral complexity. Very attractive and appealing. Ripe fruit and vanilla sing in the mouth accompanied by spice and more floral notes. Lovely from beginning to end. Enjoy with roast meats or mature cheeses. (VINTAGES panel, March 2013)

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.
