Picked up following an hour long conversation with the wine maker. This is an elegant and refined 90/10 Sangiovese and Merlot blend. The refined elegance isn't surprising as this is one of the highest vineyards in the Chianti Classico DCOG. Also has nice complexity with flavors of violet, black cherry, raspberry, and baking spice well balanced by high pitched acidity and supple tannins. Great producer, wish I had bought more!!

All sorts of different cherry notes on the nose; sour, candied, dried, and they all follow through to the flavors. Very well balanced
