Sangiovese grapes were naturally concentrated by the heat and dryness of the vintage, and the oak signature is more prominent here (the wine sees 24 months in barrique). I'd definitely suggest putting this wine aside in your cellar to allow for better integration. I kept my open bottle at 55 degrees Fahrenheit and tasted it again two days later. The wine opened beautifully to show rich and profound fruit with some of those earthy and dusty limestone aromas that are so specific to this labor-intensive farming site on a remote hilltop. The score you see here was adjusted higher after that second tasting. A mere 6,000 bottles were made. - ML

Lots of cherry and vanilla aromas and flavors with a full body, dense and structured center palate and a long, flavorful finish. Shows blue fruit and dried flowers at the end. Drink or hold.

There is a smoky element overlaying the macerated cherry and plum notes in this broad, solidly structured red. There is a feeling of fluidity, but also intensity and a sense that this is holding back. Well-proportioned...   There is a smoky element overlaying the macerated cherry and plum notes in this broad, solidly structured red. There is a feeling of fluidity, but also intensity and a sense that this is holding back. Well-proportioned and long, with an aftertaste of tobacco and mineral. Best from 2022 through 2040. – BS
