Made with organically grown Sangiovese and adhering to certified sustainable practices, this delicious, fragrant red offers enticing scents of dark spice, new leather, wild berry and eucalyptus oil. The elegantly structured palate boasts wonderful fruit and spice, showcasing juicy Marasca cherry, raspberry compote and cinnamon while a licorice note lingers on the close. Silky tannins and fresh acidity keep it nicely balanced. Drink through 2025.

A big, juicy VNM with cherries, walnuts, chocolate and spice. It’s full-bodied, chewy and layered. Lots of tannins, yet it shows intensity and energy. Give this a year or two, but impressive now. Drink or hold.

The organic 2017 Vino Nobile di Montepulciano offers a delicate embroidery of red fruit, pressed violet and potting soil. There are subtle highlights of dried orange peel and iron ore as well. This pretty wine prizes fruit purity and simplicity. It offers a naked interpretation of this noble appellation without distractions or too many bells or whistles. The wine is light and streamlined on the palate, but there is enough tannic power to carry it over a meal of pici pasta and rabbit ragù.

Plum and black cherry flavors are framed by sweet, wood smoke and spice in this supple red. It's firm, with refined and well-integrated tannins and a lingering aftertaste of fruit, earth and spice. Drink now through 2028. 13,300 cases made, 4,200 cases imported. — BS
