Natalie's Score: 89/100

This dark and marauding red wine displays aromas of coffee, mocha, dark chocolate and espresso on the nose followed by fleshy black plums on the palate. A muscular wine, right up to the flavour punch on the finish. Umberto Cesari makes finely crafted wines from Sangiovese, a signature Italian red wine.

Sangiovese food pairings: hard cheeses, pasta, salami Toscana.
