Super ripe aromas and flavours of red cherry, violet, candied raspberry, kirsch and sweet spices. Long and suave with youthfully chewy tannins and with a trace of alcoholic warmth showing.
100% Sangiovese, aged in old vats. A bold and forward wine: black cherry attack, with a liqueur richness and a hint of dried fruit. Already very accessible, this should develop well.
Splendid aromatics: cassis with dried fruit. This builds beautifully on the palate, offering cooked red fruits and figs, plus a savoury dimension. Ripe tannins there for keeping. Less monumental than the great 2010 vintage, but perhaps more approachable.
