Chris reviewed this wine:

Nice flavours of citrus and pear supported by classic traditional method yeasty flavours. Fine bubbles and a hint of sweetness while still being dry.

Chris scored this wine: 93/100

Very nice Sangiovese. Big aromas starting with some red fruit, working towards some darker fruit, supported with some nice spice, richness, and floral complexity. Nice long finish. Firm acidity and some well integrated tannin will allow this wine to improve over next decade. Old world structure with some new world influence of flavour. One of my favourite Sangiovese's.
