Intense and rather mouth-puckering, notably on the bitter side. Yet offering a good degree of concentration as well...

May 2021: Consistent notes from 15 months ago, still a lovely CC.

Original notes: A bigger, more full-bodied CC here from Lornano, perhaps due to the warm (even by Tuscan standards) vintage. Still, there is no doubt that this is Sangiovese through and through - cherry fruit, perhaps a bit of darker fruit coming in, a mere hint of spice/vanilla from the wood and finishing with the expected acidity and some still chewy tannin. Really fine CC, fine now, but better in a year or 2. Should live through 2025. Of course, ignore Luca Maroni's idiotic 97 pt score...Tasted Feb 2020

Medium intensity nose of red cherry, clove, earth, and forest floor aromas. It is medium-bodied with nice aroma replays joined by strawberry notes. It has chalky tannins that need some time and very good length on the juicy finish. 100% Sangiovese. Tasted Oct/2018.
