Tasting Note

Cooler to moderate spring temperatures, following a warm hot summer, allowed for plenty of Sangiovese hang time and small, moderate yields.

The nose combines luscious fruit with savory aromatics. The primary fruit aromas are dark cherry, plum, strawberry leather and sun-dried tomato with potpourri, dried roses, herbs and a hint of earth. An initial silky mouth with moderate-plus acidity transitions to chalky, fine grain tannins with a light-soft grip. The dark cherry and plum persist with carob, licorice, and savory notes of marjoram, pepper and sandalwood.
