Iron, blood, red cherry lozenge, black cherry, balsamic, slight savory / intense & direct freshness / Serious Sangiovese—goes toe to toe with many brunellos, in my opinion, and totally shines / on the skin for 30 days, site-specific. . . Not just the leftovers, but a true version of the real thing. and totally vivid at 5 years!

Taut and high toned. I do not love the elevage imprint, but the fruit character is classic.

A masterpiece! Rich, ripe and generous, yet with perfectly judged restraint, creating drinkability and a classy feeling. Will age better than people think.

Such a cleverly constructed wine, with smoky minerality and exotic spice on the intriguing nose where developing sweet red and dark berries intermingles. Total dryness, great mineral presence and still youthfully tight tannins tell you to hold off another few years. A bargain.

Perfect state of fruit ripeness of fruit with a fresh and lively vibe. Goes deep with a defined earthy, iron like minerality and a savory saltiness. Complete coverage on the palate, where the fruit is brought forward by the ripe, fine grained and playfully charged tannins and a fresh spine. Complexity and drinkability combined. Outstanding for a Rosso di Montalcino and a great QPR. Day 2 and the wine is more comfortable and reveals another dimension. An elegant wine from a classy artist! Salute!

I wish more RdM would be so fresh, refined and detailed as this version from @Riccardo Campinoti High altitude vineyards and a hands off approach in the cellar are key factors in creating this quaffable and juicy wine.
