Intriguingly fragrant but subtly so, this slowly reveals blood orange, dark plum, lavender and spice. Though richly fruited and generous, it shows breed and energy. It's a very textural Sangiovese, with layers of granular tannins and an equally thrilling lift. It's almost drinkable now but has plenty more to come.

Dense, dusty tannins line the finish, but there's a lasting impression of ripe fruit. Best from 2024 through 2045. 266 cases made, 25 cases imported. — BS

Its structure is more giving and more supple, with a long finish of sweet herbs and dark cherry fruit. Though the acidity is less racy than the most recent vintage, It still offers weightless lift and freshness. These are beautiful and nuanced wines that are expressive of the vintage and consistent in their finesse. Enjoy over the next 15 or more years. 2021-2036.

Full in feel but showing the finesse imparted by high-altitude vineyards located to the north of Montalcino, the youthfully energized palate features ripe Marasca cherry, licorice and coffee. Firm, refined tannins keep it well balanced. Drink 2023–2030. KERIN O’KEEFE

A full-bodied Brunello with plum, balsamic and light meat aromas and flavors that follow through to round, chewy tannins and a flavorful finish. Better after 2024.
