100% Sangiovese aged in barrique. Medium-ruby colour with garnet flecks. Aromas of cherry, plum, hing of spice, flowers, and a whiff of peach (likely from the barrique). Medium-bodied, fresh tasting, good acidity. Tannins present, and need to integrate a little more. Moderate finish, 30s, with red fruit. More air allows vanilla and peach to come out on the palate. Needs a couple years. 88+ points (06/01/2006).
