2015 vintage: winter with little rain, there were no frosts and no snow. A Spring characterized by average rains and hot summers with little rainfall. Autumn saw the rains alternate with days of good weather and excellent temperature variations. The harvested grapes immediately showed a remarkable complexity in aromas and elegance of tannins. Of considerable importance was the natural acidity, above average. A vintage of the highest and rare quality level.
Sample of intense ruby red color, with garnet textures of good consistency.
The nose is intense, emanating the typical hints of Tuscan Sangiovese: the clear cherry in alcohol, the ripe plum, a delicate balsamic note as well as a nuance of cloves and licorice.
The sip is full and tasty, with the alcohol content well mitigated by the freshness, important yet very velvety tannins. Baked larded pheasant.
