Almost impenetrable dark red colour, sustained and round with complex notes of liquorice and ripe black cherry, both powerful and classy. Full, ripe, spicy black-skinned fruit on the palate, smooth tannins expose great elegance. Chestnutty fruit long aftertaste. Serve it at 18°C with game or matured cheeses.

WINE ENTHUSIAST 2015 - 91 POINTS This earthy expression of Sangiovese offers aromas of fennel, dried hay, rose and a balsamic note. The palate delivers wild cherry, raspberry, clove, savory herb and licorice alongside gripping tannins and firm acidity. It still needs to develop. Drink 20202030.
ROBERT PARKER 2015 - 91 POINTS
James Suckling 2015 - 94 POINTS
A soft and silky red with dried berries and cream and hints of vanilla. Full body, fine tannins and a fruity finish. Best wine ever from here. Better in 2016.
WINE SPECTATOR 2014 - 90 POINTS
Perfumed, delivering rose, wild thyme and sage highlights to the core of cherry, licorice, leather and tobacco flavors. Complex, with a long, underbrush-accented finish. Best from 2016 through 2028.
