This wine grows on you, and it keeps getting better and better. It is classic, tighly wound, earthy, tannic red-fruited Sangiovese out of the shoot, but it softens with air into the most gorgeous, velvety, blackberry and cherry deliciousness, with such length! It is a food wine, but I can't resist the temptation to sip it solo (maybe with a little cheese to soften the tannins in the mouth) and be transported to the Tuscany of my imagination. Hey, it's cheaper than a flight, right?
