Just not the Super Tuscan I was expecting. Very flat and was closer to a weak Pinot Noir than a robust Super Tuscan.

Leather and black cherries. A bit astringent, but overall profile is nice.

Wow, 100% Sangio. Extremely drinkable right now: Dried berries and herbs, long finish

2/2020. Nice Sangiovese. Bold with a nice flavor and finish. Paired well with Risotto served at Indaco located in Charleston SC.

Ottimo vino, penalizzato in intensità olfattiva, corpo e persistenza. Da bere giovane.
