A richly-textured, layered expression of Sangiovese that is a marvel to behold. The fruit remains extremely primary, and this is a Riserva that will require quite a bit of patience. The finesse of the tannins and the luxurious expansiveness of the fruit hint at what is to come. The future can only be bright for a wine of this exceptional pedigree.
94 Points-Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate “Vibrant and fresh, with compelling suggestions of violets, dark cherries, spices and minerals that emerge from the glass. It is a wine that possesses both massive amounts of fruit as well as imposing supporting structure. A refined, elegant, deeply-nuanced wine. I imagine it will still offer much pleasure at age 20. Anticipated maturity: now-2021.”
