Ruby-red. Sangiovese-accurate aromas and flavors of redcurrant, violet, licorice and black tea leaf, all lifted by flinty minerality. Bright and fresh thanks to harmonious acidity but on the lean side. Finishes vibrant and long but mountingly austere, with the fruit held under wraps by currently over-assertive tannins. Will the fruit manage to break through the tannic cloak? Maybe food and time in the cellar will help this clean, pure wine develop more flesh.
