The stunning, opaque purple-colored 1997 Il Torrione (100% Sangiovese aged 12–18 months in French barrels) offers a super-sweet nose of cherry and strawberry jam intertwined with new saddle leather, spicy oak, tobacco, and cigar box aromas. Full-bodied, rich, and multilayered, with a sweet mid-palate and inner core of concentration, this sumptuous, low acid, fat Sangiovese will provide opulent drinking for a decade.
