A hedonistic Sangiovese from the Brunellos boutique. Garnet in colour, full body, medium + intensity displaying more of wild aromatic herbaceous aromas than the fruity side, rosemary, cedar, juniper berry, cranberry, cherry with silky tannins, calm acidity that delivers a pleasant long finish. I would re-assess this wine in 5 years time to evaluate the landing of its prime time.
