A "cousin" of Sangiovese and it shows! Great with pizza. Smooth, red fruit forward with good length. Medium-light body with good brightness and acidity. Very traditional with not a hint of barrel aging.

Transparent garnet red. Bricky red fruit in the nose and palate. Firm tannins and medium plus acidity. Very tasty. In a great place now.

This was the 2014 vintage. Lovely full to medium bodied wine. Good fruit and finish.

Gave this baby a whirl on a whim and it didn’t disappoint. I was scared of it coming from a larger producer but it had depth and nuance. It did need time to open.
