An intense display of woodland berries in a cloud of crushed stone, dried florals and cedar lifts effortlessly from the 2018 Rosso di Montalcino, as notes of worn leather and undergrowth join the mix. On the palate, silky textures flood the senses, offset by mineral-tinged black cherry, and brisk acids add verve. The finish is medium in length and subtle, yet shows purity of Sangiovese fruit, as dried berries give way to salty minerals and finally a hint of tannic bite.

Aromas of violet, underbrush and red woodland berry shape the nose. Medium bodied and linear, the vibrant palate offers pomegranate, sour cherry and star anise set against racy acidity and taut, polished tannins that provide support and finesse. Drink through 2028.
