Dazzling deep ruby in color. The nose is loaded with bright red fruits and a kiss of vanilla bean.
The palate is creamy and acidic like a splendidly satisfying sorbet. Refreshing and impeccably balanced, this is a stellar example of one of our favorite varieties.
The 2016 Sangiovese was such a shining star that it stands alone in the blend for this vintage.
