100% Sangiovese
 
Spicy on the nose with a hint of wood adding detail to the raw if not aggressive perfumes of frutti del bosco flecked with hints of seeds and spice adding real complexity. This is downright opulent in the mouth and punching way above its weight class with richness, depth of fruit and a refined quality that makes this a real standout of the tasting. the fruit, pure, lively and spiced on the palate with wild red berry, red cherry,  and astringent lingonberry notes is wrapped around subtle mineral and herbal nuances with fantastic length, power, and freshness on the finish. 92pts
 
 
80% Sangiovese, 20% unspecified ‘complementary’ varieties
 
Wild yeast organic earthy, funky aromas greet the nose, though under all of that this really has a big, perfumed nose with great complexity. Edgy and wonderfully clear on the palate,  this is awesome though it has some funk on the palate that will turn some people off. late arriving minerality explodes through the veil of sheer red fruits and leads to a long finish that shows real finesse and a fine edge of austerity to the tannins in the mouth. 91pts
 
 
90% sangiovese, 10% complimentary red grape varieties 
 
Rather explosive on the nose with superbly focused aromas of mineral, dried herbs, and smoky nuances all layered over a base of slightly jammy wild strawberry and lingonberry fruit. Perhaps a touch soft on entry, this then firms up with a fine astringent streak running through the cherry and strawberry fruited palate. In the mouth the fruit tannins built up showing great structure and compelling complexity that lingers through the long finish. This could use some more definition on the palate, which may come with time, but is already very good. 90pts
 
 
95% Sangiovese, 5% Canaiolo
 
High toned on the nose and a bit beefy then smelling gorgeously of earth, herb and spicy red fruit. This opens on the round side of things in the mouth with slightly bricky tannins and tart acids supporting a core of rich and fairly powerful raspberry. The tannins turn more polished in the mouth and through the elegant finish which is rich with slightly astringent and tart red fruits.90pts
 
 
100% Sangiovese
 
Perfumed and  floral on the nose, which is filled with aromas of spiced blueberries, minerals, and sweet leather notes.  A touch soft, or rather fleshy in the mouth, this is rich with soft, ripe tannins that makes for a bit of a chewy mouthful. There’s plenty of bright cherry and slightly darker berry fruit on the palate that is nicely perfumed and shows fine persistence on the moderately long finish but this shows good power yet not great elegance. 89pts
 
 
80% Sangiovese, 10% Colrino 10% Pugnitello
 
Classic smoky red fruits greet the nose framed with nuanced dried herbal and tree bark aromas. Sweet fruit, nicely spicy and with a twang floats across the palate showing off a very pretty and aromatic style. The  red fruit, ripe but fresh and raspberry toned is punctuated by slightly rough tannins that show an edge of astringency on the moderately long finish. 88pts
 
 
95% Sangiovese, 5% Merlot
 
Big aromas greet the nose all leathery at first then bright with fresh fruit, a hint of a refreshing herbs and a hint of sweet toasty wood spice. Lively on the palate, with power, cut and inner mouth perfumes, this is very strong with fine cherry fruit on the midpalate though it does fade a bit on the finish. fairly structured today, this has everything in place to age into a wonderful chianti classico, but it would benefit from another year in the bottle. 88pts
 
 
95% Sangiovese, 5% Canaiolo
 
Mineral and herb greet the nose followed by a little huckleberry over wild blackberry fruit but the dusty and mineral notes return to dominate the nose in a nuanced and attractive way Fairly big fruit in the mouth is a little chewy, a little short, tight and raw but with lovely purity of fruit and fine typicity. This definitely needs some time in the bottle but has everything in place to grow into a fine example of Chianti Classico that really wears its terroir on its sleeve. 87pts
