Dark ruby garnet. Initially shy nose of black cherry drops. Medium-bodied palate echoes the nose with a hint of stony licorice marzipan mid-palate to finish. Medium acidity. Sneaky medium tannins that assert on the finish. A nice intro to the “Duke” of Tuscan Sangiovese-based wines. Not quite as structured as higher-priced offerings, but that’s good for the novice. Drink now through 2024.

Licorice, dark fruits and tobacco. Structured w firm tannins -- this can definitely use decanting --- improved considerably w time in the glass. Had it with pasta, but think meat would be a better match for the tannins. Could also probably use more time in the bottle.

Aromas of tart fruit and spicy tobacco notes. On the palate simple flavors of raspberry and cherry with tar and pepper spice. Grippy tannins, medium finish ending with pungent spice. Ok for price but better out there.

Medium bodied Sangiovese. Earthy notes up front with more spiced cherry finish

Flavorful and yummy! Would drink again. Visited this region on my honeymoon! Bought for that reason and was not disappointed.

This wine grew on me as the bottle progressed. Fruity, floral, and very light on the tongue. Strong tobacco flavor on the nose. It was okay, but I don’t think I’d go out of my way to buy again.
