"Intense aromas of fragrant purple flower, crushed berry, menthol and cake spice steal the spotlight while the tight, savory palate doles out juicy black cherry, crushed raspberry, licorice and tobacco. Taut, fine-grained tannins provide the framework. Drink through 2023." Editors' Choice

"Gaiole in Chianti. 90% Sangiovese, 4% Canaiolo, 4% Ciliegiolo, 2% Colorino.
Just mid crimson. Gorgeous raspberry and cherry-confit nose with real lift and a hint of marzipan. Youthful palate tightly packed with stalky tannins. Built for the future." 17++/20 points. (WS)
