Give this wine some time in the glass and you will be rewarded by beautiful evolution and depth.

It is a deep ruby with subtle orange reflexes. The nose is big, complex and very warm, showing dried fruit but also the typical herbs of a hot Mediterranean summer day: thyme, rosemary, lavender and minty aromas. Even the scent of sun-parched dry earth comes to mind. Then there is coffee and dark chocolate, and – surprisingly - white pepper.

In the mouth firm tannins paired with juicy acidity give this wine a beautiful structure that embraces its warm flavors and powerful elegance. Definitely mouth filling while the memory of dark chocolate lingers towards the finish.

The long finish makes me yearn for the next sip and the next. Of course Sangiovese typically is meant to be enjoyed with food, but with this one I seem to not need any, I could gladly go on savoring, discovering new layers with each sip.
