Very deep, remarkably youthful color for a five-year- old Sangiovese. Flattish, berry-like nose. Big, rich wine, with a line of austerity and a lack of breadth in the mouth. Acid level seems deficient at first, then attacks on the finish. Impressive wine, but not very typical. drink 2014+.
Deep black core to garnet rim. Concentrated, a touch closed, black-fruit nose; broad, not very typical Sangiovese structure, with sweet, jammy fruit.

Dense, concentrated color, remarkably deep for Sangiovese. Concentrated, modern, international style. Rich, ripe, lots of flavor, but the wine gets more Tuscan and Brunello-like on the palate. Lots of sweet modern oak but a well-made wine, with medium, youthful tannins, good integration, and plenty of guts. A wine that will appeal to the US market but less to traditionalists. All the same, a well-made, concentrated, serious wine.
