It opens with elegant richness and soft tones of black cherry, licorice, spice and dark leather. The style is opulent and confident for this mostly Sangiovese-based wine. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2024. - Monica Larner

An aromatic Torrione with violets, berries and spices. Hazelnut aromas as well. Full body, with pretty tannins and a delicate fruity finish. Nicely integrated tannins. Always beautiful. Better after 2014 but why wait?

Rich and dense, yet firmly structured, delivering cherry, rhubarb and currant flavors accented by tobacco and underbrush notes. The tannins are assertive now, supporting a long and spicy finish. Sangiovese. Best from 2015... Rich and dense, yet firmly structured, delivering cherry, rhubarb and currant flavors accented by tobacco and underbrush notes.

Sweet, intense and rich, with ripe red cherry jam and spicy oak flavors saturating the mouth. Finishes with broad, dusty tannins and outstanding persistence. In a ripe style, but with good definition and cut.
