100% sustainably farmed Sangiovese Grosso. Only made in 5 star vintages, this Riserva is delicious, balanced incredible value compared to the likes of other high end winerys. To make this sublime riserva, Mocali grapes from its oldest vines. After a cold soak and long primary fermentation in stainless steel, the wine undergoes malolactic fermentation in wood to add richness and structure. Then the wine ages 4 years in French oak to produce a rich, luscious wine that unfolds in layers of complexity.

A firm, complex red, with iron, leather and sanguine notes accenting the core of cherry. Vibrant and long, featuring a mouthwatering aftertaste that evokes fruit, mineral, leather and tobacco. Best from 2019 through 2030. 166 cases made.

The 2011 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva boasts a dark garnet color and rich concentration. This pretty Brunello presents thick lines and a robust personality. The bouquet delivers darkened highlights with dried blackberry, cherry confit, bitter almond and Indian spice. There is indeed a point of sourness on the finish that I recognize from many of the other Riservas made in this warm vintage. This wine still needs to find stable footing.

This opens with aromas of ripe black plum, scorched soil, toasted oak and roasted coffee bean. The dense ripe palate offers dried cherry, clove and espresso with chewy tannins. Drink through 2019 to catch the remaining fruit.
