Brunello in disguise.
Mostly Sangiovese with as they say a small amount of Pugnitello.
Raised up in med toast barrique and tonneaux. I decanted 3 hrs.
N: Big, warm, Black cherry and Liquorice nose.You can sense the wood but it’s not intrusive. Red flowers/ Geraniums, whiff of vanilla.
P:Cherry bomb, souis bois, dirt,( in the best way) charcoal, pencil lead, nice tannic grip, beautiful acid balance. More black/red flowers. Long finish.
Not as “bright “ as many Chianti, rides the “ darkness” of Brunello, weight in between.

I decanted this for an hour.
N: Mulberries, Dense forest, Crushed blueberries.
P: Toe-Bacco! This is a big boy.It’s dense but the acidity is bright, rides the line between trad. & modern.
Sangiovese with small amount of Pugnitello done in barriques and tonneaux, med toast Allier.
Cherries are sneaky, dark and emerge w time out. From Gaiole in Chianti.
