Reticent on the nose and herbal with aromas of dried graasses, hay and subtley spicy red fruits. Light, fresh and zesty in the mouth, this is laden with bright, clear and slightly sweet cherry fruit. It’s a simple wine but round and yet bright in the mouth. Very refreshing and gaining some savory complexity on the backend, this goes down dangerously easily and has just enough tannin to add some mouthgrab. 86pts

(mainly sangiovese with a small amount of canaiolo nero): Bright ruby-red. Intense aromas of red cherry, flinty plum and aromatic herbs on the captivating nose. Juicy and suave, with crunchy raspberry and redcurrant flavors. The red berry flavors resound on the long finish. This delicious wine really improves with air, so I suggest decanting it an hour ahead. ** SOLD OUT **
