"Precisely ripe and perfectly balanced, this wine has an ease and tension, lasting on a crystal clear note of cherry, as if picked fresh off the tree in spring. There's more to it than just the cherry, with floral scents of violets and a lacy geode of minerals within the fruit. Luscious tannin smoothes the texture, making it approachable now; this blend of 90-percent sangiovese with cabernet sauvignon is more immediately accessible than the Badia a Passignano, and should age beautifully over the next 10 years."

Deep ruby red with garnet hues, it has pronounced cherry and violet fruit with tobacco, cedar and spicy leather nuances on the nose. It is a rich, full-bodied and rounded red wine of remarkable depth whose elegant structure will enable it to mature gracefully.
