Vigna Vecchia

Vintage: 2018

 

Appearance: Clear, medium, ruby with brick red reflections.

Nose: The nose is clean and pronounced in intensity. Fresh, slightly sweet notes of strawberry and cherry overlay a heady bouquet of dried rose petals, sage, and hawthorn.

Palate: This wine is dry with high acidity and alcohol in perfect equilibrium. Integrated, fine-grained tannins provide structure for an abundance of complex flavors. Rosemary, mint, and tobacco interweave layers of ripe red cherries, dried orange zest, and a hint of kirsch. Intense, powerful, and ethereal, with a long, ruminative finish. A striking expression of varietal Sangiovese and a testament to the power of heart, hard work, and terroir.
