The archetype for Sangiovese. Super deep, layered full of flavor and energy. Camphor, grilled herbs, black fruits, meaty lavender. Campfire smoke. Killer.

Superb!!!! Cherries, leather, and earth aroma. Complex taste. Very smooth with some subtle tannins.

2016. Damn good, even this young. 3+ hours of decanting opens focused red Sangiovese fruit and beginnings of leather and other complexities. Firm tannins, enough subtle acid and tartness (and unfortunately a hint of oak) to make it stand up to food. Should flesh out nicely in 2-4 years. $50 at Vine Republic.

Was excited to open this one up and it was a huge disappointment. Completely lacking in flavor and no finish whatsoever. Makes me wonder if I got a bad one.
