This Rosso blend of Sagrantino and Sangiovese isn't quite fully integrated and comes across as lacking balance. There's cherry fruit and good acidity from the Sangiovese, dark fruit and medium plus bitter tannin from the Sangrantino, and decent length, but it has edges. Oak treatment is noticeable and not harmonious. Alcohol heat is also noticeable. In need of decanting, meaty protein, or further aging to integrate better. Feb. 2018.
