Cherries and Christmas spice on the nose. Midweight. Purple fruit. Good mouth-feel.

Very elegant - needs a couple of hours in a decanter before it starts to open, but then it is redolent of violet, sour cherry, leather, fennel, and forest flour. Very well balanced and deceptively graceful because there is no shortage of power here either. Long finish. Better in two or three years

I own the ‘15 and was completely disappointed that it is still sooo tight . I passed on buying the ‘16, now to my regret. This one is singing even young. Tradition Sangiovese. A breath of sunny Tuscany. Ripe red fruit and that burnt Tuscan dirt. Just amazing. Long finish with medium plus acidity for long cellaring.

Great Wines of Italy SFO. The official 2019 guidebook online at www.jamessuckling.com/event/great-wines-italy-usa-2019-guidebook . Not rating since I’m using one glass and most of these wines were only open for a little bit before tasting. Super fun night. Winery of the night?
