It's seldom that I enjoy domestic Sangiovese, but this one I like. Richer than you'd find in Tuscany, but still has typicity.

Delicious example of domestic Sangiovese. Dusty, tart red fruit, nice use of oak.

Screams red fruit and savory meaty notes, incredible length on the finish. Just a stellar wine.

Love the winery, but the is oak dominant today. Slightly dilly, toasted oak and a hint of phenolic bitterness. Lacking fruit, but well structured with pleasant acidity. It may pull out, but I doubt it.

Smokey and heavier than expected. Slight cranberry acid but surprisingly Syrah like. Herbaceous.

Great causal night glass of wine. Went well with a nice liga provada. Unti always Seems to deliver a good glass of wine.
