Tasting Notes
Brawny yet very genteel, this full bodied Sangiovese, with soft round tannins, is dominated by black cherry with a touch of sour. Caramelized black raspberry and cassis, garnished with licorice and black olive add depth to the mid-palate while the earthy hints of finger rolled dried cigar tobacco and sun-baked garden humus provide an added layer of complex exploration.
-Chuck Reininger, Winemaker
