90pts Vinous

Here I'm finding a zesty and wild bouquet of crushed red fruits in a cloud of cedar dust and sweet spices with hints of leather and herbs. Notes of black cherry slowly turn more to cranberry, with sweet herbs, minerals and juicy acidity. The finish is long, maintaining a vibrant personality, as red fruits and spice mingle with resonating floral and earth tones. This is a wonderfully balanced Rosso that’s going to make a lot of Sangiovese lovers very happy. Drinking window: 2020 - 2028.

Winemaker Notes

Brilliant ruby-red color, this classic Rosso offers sumptuous aromas of ripened blackberries and dark cherries. On the palate, the wine is generously well-rounded and rich with fruit-forward notes complimented by hints of leather and mesquite.

Recommended with pasta smothered in meat sauces, hearty game or beef-based casseroles.
