The palate delivers an impressively concentrated core of red-cherry and red-plum flavor. The tannins are succulent and the depth is good for this vintage. Drink or hold.

In 2014, harvest was pushed back until mid-October in order to achieve full ripeness. The wine spent the first four to five months in small 5hl barrels to stabilise the colour, with the remaining time spent in traditional large botti. It opens with iron and savoury spice before revealing leather and tobacco leaf notes. There's definitely some flesh to pad out the structure in this well-balanced example, with smoky incense notes on the finish.

To my mind, it represents one of the best interpretations you will find from this difficult vintage that caused so much unease. The Fuligni family shows a deft hand, resulting in a wine that offers more balance, intensity and depth than a good majority of its peers. It opens to a compact and streamlined style, but it follows through with an articulate set of aromas including cassis, red rose, camphor ash and aniseed. The mouthfeel is thin in texture but lengthy in flavor and freshness. This is a very traditional expression of Sangiovese in heart and soul. Some 20,000 bottles were made.- ML

Raspberry, cassis, licorice and sexy, spicy tarry oak on the nose. Savory and fleshy on the palate, with a pungent acidity to the ripe red cherry, mocha, floral and mint flavors. Finishes long, with an at once saline and sweet taste profile. Good intensity but seems a little disjointed presently with the ripe creamy fruit notes not in harmony with the acid spine. Needs a couple years to expand and balance in the bottle. -- Ian D'Agata
