This Chianti offers a level of depth, power, and concentration that is rare for wines of this classification. The Sangiovese grapes comes from some of the coolest blocks at the estate, which gives a vibrant acidity. The nose exudes ripe fruit and floral notes of violets and roses, with undertones of cedar. The palate is lush and full, chewy and laden with fruit. Supple tannins and moderate acidity allow the fruit flavors to shine through, revealing layers of red fruit – cherry and plum – with notes of honeysuckle. A long finish gives way to herbal and spice notes of nutmeg, cinnamon and lingering black tea.
