Enticing scents of fragrant purple flower, perfumed berry and exotic spice shape the nose. Smooth and savory, the elegant, accessible palate features mature black cherry, licorice and orange zest framed in silky tannins. Drink through 2021.

Review:
Good pale red color. Fresh and medium-bodied, this boasts noteworthy precision to its strawberry, blood orange and floral aromas and flavors. Harmonious acidity provides remarkable clarity and cut. Finishes with an impressive mineral edge and outstanding length. An excellent Rosso di Montalcino that was released late and that manages to stay light and lively despite the very hot vintage. Well done.
