Aromas of cherry, dried flowers, red licorice, cedar and sage rise from the glass to form a gorgeous, rich and interesting nose. The palate comes across as more advanced than expected but amazing none the less with strawberry, herbal tea with honey, minerals and bacon fat. The finish is long with sour cherry fruit and still shows a generous amount of fine tannin. This is classic in every way

A perfect example of a Sangiovese entering maturity. The color was red heading toward burnt orange. On the nose is a bouquet of dried flowers and potpourri, with undergrowth and tar, but all the while showing plum fruit and caramel. Take a sip and you find raspberry fruit, flower petals, rosemary and a hint of aged oak. The palate was silky smooth, but with a perfect balance of acidity that works to keep your mouth watering and craving another bite from your plate. The finish is full of sour berry, but not dry; instead it's fresh and smooth.

Drinking this wine in 2009. The nose is pretty fascinating. Red cherry notes, spice and something... brambly. Lots of tobacco. On the palate doesn't really taste ten years old. Acidity is high, but not overpowering. Flavors on the palate are a bit more low key. Lots of cherry. Hint of menthol.
