Pretty floral aromatics, medium structure with a nice mineral vein. 2/3 through the high alcohol comes into play, unfortunately simplifying the wine. 14.5-15% alc/vol

Still young, but very good. Pnp
Violets, cherry, dried rose petals, and leather. Shows very good promise.

Nice rich Brunello. Well balanced but definitely a lot of dark cherry fruit. Excellent aromatically after some air.

A little light, but pairs well with the pasta.

Dark ruby, brownish red on the eye, medium viscosity. Nose sees bright, ripe, red cherries, bourbon/old fashioned notes, cigar box, dank basement/wet wood. Palette sees medium acid, medium+ mouthfeel, medium dry tannins, oak, red fruits, strawberries and cherries. Delicious Sangiovese with expressive nose. Paired great with pizza from Delancey- a birthday treat!
