Who would have thought that this Sangiovese/Cabernet Sauvignon blend would age so well. Even the 24 months of barrique therapy didn’t screw it up. None of the pop fruit. Instead, classy and composed; well groomed, but, not over-pampered. Savory is the line it hold very well. Quite mineral too, almost a touch-and-go between slightly sweet and salty. I had a bottle a year ago and it was dead. This one – bobbing along famously. A fantastic upside surprise from my stash…and at a mere €20 price tag.
