Ruby, garnet with a hint of brick. Powerful, complex nose with dried cherries and savory herbs. Full and round with palate authority and excellent balance of fruit, acid and tannin, all enveloped by a kiss of oak. Has power combined with elegance and complexity, that of all grape varieties, sangiovese in the hands of a sangiovese master, is the most capable! Pair with meat dishes, such as bistecca fiorentina and grilled mushrooms. Despite its easy drinability, this is a vino de medatazione, a wine conducive to, and deserving of, contemplation.
