    July 30, 2020 - Dark dried fruit, balsamico, black tea, gravel road, dried herbs. Big fruit on the palate with alcohol coming through in the aftertaste. Good acidity. Personally I like a cooler style of sangiovese.

  • Tim Heaton Likes this wine:

    September 20, 2019 - Not a classic version in this vintage, as I find the structure, and palate to be more in tune with the vintage than the 'house', per se, but it's still in my wheelhouse as it's stocked with plenty of soil, sous bois, and forest accents that hold my attention. The finish is long, and juicy, yielding a wine that's both easy to drink, and also worth one's time and money; this will last into the mid-term, and likely improve as it does. ~ 200,000 bottles produced, and, given the high quality, that's to be commended. Drink now thru 2032. (90-92)
