TASTING NOTE: Smells like a little Cabernet Sauvignon enhancing the Sangiovese in this black currant- and cherry flavored red (but it's actually Canaiolo, with a bit of Mammolo and Colorino). Cedar, thyme, iron and sanguine notes round out the palate as this cruises to a lingering aftertaste. Shows excellent structure and balance. Best from 2020 through 2035.
