Lots of earth and good fruit. Drinking better on day 2.

A little riper than classic Baricci, but still enough Montosoli acidity tie it all together.

A very clean, expressive Sangiovese to go with Cinnamon's eggplant Parmesan. This is a very nicely done Rosso, but I prefer the higher toned, more mineral style of Chianti to the north.

A little pruney on the nose, but it opened up, more structured and closed than some of the 2013's, a solid wine.

Nice choice when pairing to a variety of dishes (duck, pork, even fish) bright red fruit, a bit of tomato leaf, lively.

N: Blood orange, blood, iron, herbs, underbrush.
P: Blood orange preserves, Iron, blood,
Hummus, tastes like Montalcino of your dreams. Light on the palate but not lacking for acidity or tannins.
Can’t wait to wait on the rest.
As it airs, tannins get bigger, cherries, and a certain funk.
