$85

Distinctly savory, this red delivers grassy, thyme and menthol aromas and flavors allied to notes of cherry, strawberry and loam. Angular and dense, with the fruit component emerging with air, this is long, complex and deftly balanced, revealing an aftertaste of cherry, berry, mineral and herbal accents. Best from 2025 through 2043. 1,000 cases made, 60 cases imported.

Summary

Grape

Sangiovese

The name Sangiovese comes from the Latin sanguis Jovis, meaning "blood of Jove." Its color mirrors its etymology: The wines range from brick red to copper-tinged, and can be quite concentrated. Although the grape is originally from southern Italy, the central region of Tuscany boasts the best Sangiovese wines in the world. It is the most widely planted grape variety in the country.
