Showing all that a ripe vintage is known for...now, early mature Sangiovese aromas and savory flavors prevail. Weight and balance are modern-classic in structure. The QPR is rather good. Year in, year out this wine delivers regional character for a great price. Very cellerable. Will last another 5-8 years.

Bright cherry and raspberry fruit, with a spicy, cedar punch at the finish. But the alcohol (13.5%) and cedar eventually overwhelm the fruit.

Hint of carnations on the nose. Bursting on the tongue, fresh with taste of sour cherries. Mild tannins give it a nice finish.
