In the glass this Sangiovese is very dark, opaque and brooding. On the nose it is perfumed with some bold cherry notes, black currants and spicy oak. The palate is delicious folks- ripe black cherry, crispy tannins, juicy acidity and cedar. The mid palate is stunning too with more of that juicy fruit and a shift to some red currants, rhubarb, game and cherry compote. The finish displays a nice balance between the medium grip tannins and the acidity. Judicious use of oak is evident as there is a touch of it on the back end but it is not obtrusive. This is a well made wine that I am thoroughly enjoying whilst making spaghetti and meatballs with garlic bread and Caeser Salad. 93 points for this $50 stunner that will drink well till 2030. I’m going with 5 stars. Salut….
