Wine SpectatorThis powerful red is polished, with toasty oak framing the black cherry, blackberry, plum, mint, vanilla and earth flavors, backed by a firm structure that shows refined tannins. Fruit and tobacco elements linger on the long aftertaste. Sangiovese. Best from 2018 through 2030. 4,000 cases made.

Wine EnthusiastMade entirely with organically farmed Sangiovese, this opens with aromas mature black-skinned fruit, French oak, exotic spice and a whiff of blue flower. The vibrant palate is both elegant and structured, delivering juicy black cherry, pomegranate, mocha, licorice and a potpourri of cooking spice. It's well balanced, with bright acidity and fine-grained tannins. It already dazzles, but hold for even more complexity. Drink 2018-2028.
