The nose is well-balanced with elements of spice and black fruit that develop.
The Sangiovese appears immediately in all its greatness, soft and velvety, with hints of ripe black cherry and a touch of cassis. The tannins are well blended, dense and fleshy. The finish is elegant and persistent. An excellent wine for ageing.
