2010

An intense ruby red in color, the wine shows aromas of ripe fruit, at times of maximum ripeness, but with a total respect for the grape variety and an excellently maintained freshness. The notes of the fruit and of the oak fuse in harmonious balance with minty balsamic notes and suggestions of graphite. The rich palate, with supple and balanced tannins, is vibrant and fully expressive of Sangiovese. The length, persistence,and aftertaste are of notable importance and echo the fruit first felt on the nose.

Dark berry and blueberry aromas with hints of lemon and floral undertones. Full body, silky tannins and a hazelnut, chocolate complexity to the whole thing. Delicious and flavorful yet always remains balanced.
