Closing

There is a common background in the whole production of the Fiorentini's cellar: and is given by the extreme cleaness and purity of all the wines. They are all correct and ready to drink also if just bottled. The reds will get better in a few years.
Nice experiment with the Fiorone Sangiovese, we had 3 bottles of the 2013 vintage, with 3 different corks 100 (very tight), 300 and 500 (very loose), resulting (just after 2 months) in 3 very distinctive maturation stages.
