This is a very elegant and perfumed expression of Sangiovese with lifted floral aromas that recall blue flower and dried wild rose. Beyond those delicate tones, you get cherry, cassis, strawberry, cedar, stone dust, and wet earth. The symmetry here is impeccable, as is its purity of fruit, with fine-grained, dusty tannins that result in a structured finale.

Sangiovese is a Tuscan red grape variety that has become the most planted and famous variety in Italy. You may know this variety by a few other names like Chianti, Brunello di Montalcino, Montefalco Rosso or Carmignano, but rest assured it's all the same grape, but it may grow in different regions. Sangiovese is made for food and shows with aromas and flavours of cherry, red berries, roasted tomato, balsamic, Italian herbs, coffee and cured meats, backed by cutting acidity and a good grip of tannins. The best examples come from Montalcino (Brunello di Montalcino) and can age decades!
