Coming around nicely. Very true to the essence of Sangiovese but also offering a clear testament to the ambitions at this estate. Pricey already, and will be even more so in the near future. But impossible to ignore its great quality.

An even denser and more pronounced mineral character compared to Petruccino, dark/red fruit, floral, herbs over a screaming minerality in a perfect symbiois
Tannic grip with a velvet glove, never over powering, already balanced at this young age with so much to offer. Lingers for ages. Best Sangiovese I’ve tried so far. Splendid

Big & bold yet balanced & smooth Sangiovese en purezza. Ripe forest berries, toasty oak spice, long finish.

You immediately sense that 2012 was special here; this shows gorgeous perfume and its abundant fruit is framed by clever tannins and toasty oak. But my interest grows with every sip, as the finish is sensationally intruiging and superbly balanced.

2012 vintage is simply stunning; rich red and dark fruits, spices and seductive floral notes are framed by clever oak, great acidity and sweet/grainy tannins. Will be epic in 3+ years when it gains weight.. 94+ p.

It's got power but could use a bit of finesse.
