Incredible Sangiovese from a master Brunello producer. Coming from a vineyard planted at 500masl over volcanic soils in Monte Amiata, it spent a fortnight on skins, before being pressed off to old casks for six months. From a warmer vintage, it shows black cherry, herbs and earth within a plush and pillowy texture. A pure, honest and delicious expression of the grape that punches well above its weight.
