There is no denying the fact that this wine was made with Sangiovese, it starts with the nose, aromas of sour cherry, plum, currants, savoury spices, old church wood and a touch of earthy funk which blows off after a few minutes out of the bottle. On the mouthfeel, medium bodied, dry, soft seductive fruit, smooth texture, balanced acidity and gritty tannins. Medium length on the finish, smooth, savoury, great flavours with a mild dryness. Lots of finesse and charm in this old school Sangiovese, I truly enjoyed the aromatics and its savoury personality. Nice to see a mature Vino Nobile in our store, perfectly ready to enjoy now or over the next 2-3 years. Strongly recommended.
