This wine has dialed back it's modernist tendencies to showcase the quality of fruit they have. Tasty balanced Brunello.

Color is almost pinot, 100% Sangiovese, medium plus tannin, medium plus acidity, structure is complex, can be aged for longer, fruity, on the nose vanilla, spices, fruitiness is there.

2006, a bit too young. Fruit was still hiding. Nice structure wish I had another. Oh well cheers!

This wasn’t bad, but slightly oaky. Otherwise mostly well balanced. No real signs of age yet.

Really enjoyed this wine. Must go to Italy again. The backbone and terroir are fantastic!
