Tasting Notes

The spicy and earthy nose on this sprightly bottling from the iconic vineyard is superb: pressed mulberry, beet and rhubarb aromas lifted by thyme, star anise and bay leaf. The palate is slightly mellower, with rounded pomegranate and cherry notes cut by pine needle-like spice.

Reviews & Scores

The grapes for this wine were sourced from 4 different blocks with 3 different soil types. The production was 413 cases. With a deep color the wine has a great perfume with spice tinges and floral berry nuances. It is structured and flavorful with lots of fruit showing floral nuances and a distinct minerality. The is a lovely beautifully balanced Pinot Noir with lots of character and charm. It will age beautifully for many years into the future – Extraordinary.

TASTING NOTES

Arguably the finest expression of Chianti Classico we’ve ever tasted from the estate. This is a ripe yet elegant vintage with an attractive, fleshy concentration and sweet-scented fruit. This depth is lifted by crunchy cherry acidity; tell-tale Sangiovese spice and a streak of grippy minerality add layers of complexity to what is a very complete wine. Drinking very well now...
