The grapes for this wine are grown in the Vigna del Sorbo vineyard. Planted in 1981, the vineyard is situated at an altitude of 400 m asl, facing south/south-west. Its powerful structure supports the intense, smoky, savoury fruit. TASTING: Dark ruby red in colour, this wine opens with aromas of dark black fruits, blackberry and Victoria plum. The powerful structure defines the palate and is given complexity by the smoky, savoury fruit, robust tannins and fine acidity. Certified ORGANIC & Practicing BIODYNAMIC. 100% Sangiovese.
95 points - Wine Enthusiast "Exotic spice, pipe tobacco, dark-skinned berry, forest floor and a whiff of French oak all come together on this structured red. The elegant, full-bodied palate evokes Marasca cherry, black raspberry, licorice and white pepper while vibrant acidity and firm, fine-grained tannins provide balance. It's still young, with great energy and will benefit from more time in the bottle. Drink 2020–2029."
