Review:
Remarkably fresh, bright and perfumed, the 2018 Rosso di Toscana Sangiovese lifts up with notes of cherry, sage and dusty rose. It’s soft yet energetic, as well as incredibly pure, as vivid strawberry fruit gives way to an invigorating mix of salty minerals and brisk acids. While a bit short, this still leaves a lasting impression with an air of violet flowers that lingers.
