About

Rating:

94

Very light intensity of colour yet the impact on the nose and palate of this Sangiovese is dramatic: a plot twist that, from sight, one would not expect. The nose is salty, sweetly spiced and faintly herbal, with star anise, peppered tartare and fresh mint, but the palate is really where the drinker can get lost down rabbit holes. The tannins are so resolved that they sit back and do not occupy centre stage as Sangiovese wines so often do; thus the acidity and fruit interplay is flamboyant and theatrical, with a long finish.

Product Description:

In the glass, the wine shows a vibrant mid-ruby color. Enchanting aromas of sour cherry, fresh red plums and a savory, herbal undertone perfume the senses. The palate explodes with incredible freshness and finely-etched tannins that lend energy to the bright fruit flavors that flow into an exciting finish. This is an elegant and refined Chianti, tightly wound and bursting with flavor, though balanced by an appealing roundness and surprisingly soft texture. Winemakers Notes
