James Suckling: “I was incredibly impressed with the richness of the wines. They are wonderfully fruity with a purity of ripe Sangivoese that is seldom seen from the vineyards surrounding the hilltop town of Montalcino. Viticulture and winemaking is in top form in the region”

Sliced peach and berries on the nose follow through to a full body, with chewy tannins and a juicy finish. Hints of cedar too. Delicious wine.
