95pts Wine Specator

Though reserved in aroma, this red boasts ample cherry, black currant, violet and mineral flavors, with underlying woodsy accents. The vibrant structure lends definition, and this is more about finesse than power. Shows fine length, with a chalky feel. Best from 2023 through 2042. 1,000 cases made, 100 cases imported. — BS

93pts James Suckling

A fine-tannined and pretty Brunello with currant, walnut and floral aromas and flavors. It’s medium-to full-bodied, firm and focused. Drink after 2022.

Winemaker Notes

Exceptional wine, very elegant. Traditionally vinified. After two weeks of natural and spontaneous fermentation, the wine is decanted into large French oak barrels of 30 Hl and 54Hl, where it will age for 38 months. Refined in bottle for 6 months minimum. Deep ruby red with garnet reflections, the nose expresses hints of licorice and black cherry, with deep references of wild berries and leather. Very long finish.
