Crushed raspberry and violet flavors are layered with notes of spice and orange zest and light, sculpted tannins in this balanced, medium-bodied red. Mineral-tinged finish. Sangiovese with Colorino. Drink now through 2020.

Deep red. Spicy red cherry and red berry aromas and flavors. The youthfully chewy texture is lifted by bright acidity, which helps extend the flavors on the perfumed, long back end. This is a bigger-sized Rubesco than usual, but I miss the wines more usual grace and refinement. A blend of 90% Sangiovese and 10% Colorino .
