Full-bodied and very powerful with punchy tannins, but some real integration to the agile fruit and acidity. The complexity and depth at the end is breathtaking. Drink in 2023.

The wine is fresh and firm on the palate, however, it is also immediate in character, meaning that you don't need to wait too much longer to pop the cork. Like the other wines from Barone Ricasoli, the intensity and the brawn of the mouthfeel has been intentionally toned down to give this wine a more elegant and light approach, a nice accompaniment to some delicate charcuterie. - Monica Larner

Seven hectares in size, it is located at 390 meters above sea level (almost a limit of top Sangiovese) and has a southeastern exposure. Compared to the 240ha of the estate, this is the jewel of the baron Francesco Ricasoli. It's elegant due to its filigranate floral bouquet aromas (rose, violet, iris), supported by darker fruit with great concentration, layered by tar and tobacco earthy complexity. Tannins are velvety and super elegant with delicate yet brilliant refreshing acidity. Drinking Window 2021 - 2040

Loamy earth and woodsy aromas and flavors set the tone for this savory red, which offers a cherry note from start to finish, along with a deft touch of new oak lending spice accents.
