Beautiful, dark red color. The nose exhibits a gorgeous
potpourri of flowers, thyme, and crushed raspberries. On the
palate, the wine is remarkably fresh and clean with notable
levity and lightness of being, all while retaining surprising
intensity and density. I simply love the unique way that
Sangiovese can achieve this! The tannin is wonderfully
fine-grained and the acid matches perfectly. Sangiovese is
our most challenging grape to farm—my favorite, and
this is why!
"Good deep red. Enticing aromas of red and darker berries, licorice, coffee and cocoa powder, with a distinct sangiovese floral quality. Sweet, dense and vibrant, with nicely integrated acidity giving definition to the sexy flavors of berries, dried herbs and flowers. I find the lift of the 2008 vintage but winemaker Chris Figgins notes that this wine's acidity is average rather than especially high.

"Ripe and floral, this is tightly wound with refined tannins, as carnation and violet overtones add interest to the cherry fruit. Finishes with finesse. Best from 2012 through 2017."
"Young, tangy and tart, with
racy raspberries, strawberries and pomegranate––this
is a vividly fruity and penetrating wine. Crisply defined,
immaculately fresh, it is structured for both immediate
enjoyment and cellaring over the next 6–8 years."
