Winemaker Notes:
2017 was a one-of-a-kind vintage. A tremendously hot August almost fully ripened the fruit, but two days of needed rain came in early September and cooled temperatures. A long harvest began earlier than usual and created a complex blend of Sangiovese. Legendary small yields for the 2017 vintage produced intense, concentrated, and powerful wines with vibrant acidity, despite such a warm year.

The aromas are dominated by ripe raspberry fruit and candied apples, followed by floral notes and nutmeg. The powerful nose gives way to an elegant balance of expressive fruit. The palate follows with tart cherry pie, red licorice, and sweet tobacco. A long finish shows hints of cedar and cypress. It will be extraordinary to experience this wine’s evolution in the cellar and it is expected to age gracefully.

93 Points, James Suckling
Blackberries, blueberries and other blue fruit. Some stone and pine-needle undertones. Energetic and fresh for the vintage. Medium to full body and a vivid finish. Drink or hold.
