    Winemaker's Notes:

    Aged 2 years in new 500 liter tonneaux of French oak and in bottle for at least another 2 years.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Aromas of beautiful ripe plums and berries on the nose follow through to a full body, with chewy tannins and a long velvety textured finish. The new wood, cedar, chocolate and fresh mushroom character dominates now. Big and juicy. Best after 2014.

    Here's a modern, plush and extracted expression of Sangiovese Grosso that has been enhanced by elegant oak aging. Still young, it exhibits notes of vanilla, toasted coconut, smoke and resin along with a solid base of cassis and dried berry fruit. The texture here is polished and smooth with zesty spice on the close.

    Bright, deep red. Aromas of black raspberry and sexy oak are a bit less forthcoming than those of the classico. Thick and sweet but with great energy in the mouth, although quite closed in on itself today. Today this very dense, tightly coiled wine shows less minerality but more chocolatey oak than the regular cuvee and would appear to need longer in bottle to come into harmony. Late notes of coffee and mocha.
