Simply awesome. Cool climate Sangiovese is where it is at and this is a superb example. It’s such a clean and precise wine. Mid season cherries, sour cherries, glorious cherry flower and spices. Nice soil tones as well. Mineral undertones as well. Licorice. Stunning aromas. After air it’s just an insane perfume. The palate is terrific. Juicy, pure and very linear, with wonderful sweet/sour cherry fruit, a hit of mid palate opulence and wonderful velvety, perfectly ripe tannins. Terrific freshness. Has the guts and structure for at least 10-12 years of aging and improving. Wonderful stuff.

Day one was closed even after a decant. So I stoppered it and waited for day 2. Smart move.

Nose is dusty cherry in a good way.

Palate is some of the best cleanest cherry fruit I’ve ever had in a wine. A hint of cherry licorice on the finish. Wow. Such a. Clean well made wine.

Vines are almost 100 years old.

From Emilia Romagna. A bit north of Tuscany so the wines are a bit less fruit Bomby. A bit more elegant. Good producers like these guys and costa archi are worthy seeking out.
