Community Tasting Note

    December 6, 2014 - PnP. Deep red. Exuberant cherry and sandalwood nose. Gutsy on the palate with deep fruit and tangy acidity but this must have some Merlot or another grape besides Sangiovese to be this juicy. Still some tannins to resolve on the finish but although atypical still enjoyable.

    Thanks - I can see your comparison to a Brunello; must be the ripeness of the vintage then, as this seems bigger and lower in acidity then I find other in Riservas, such as Felsina Rancia.
