Grape: 100% Sangiovese
Compared to previous vintage, there was a small amount of Colorino in the blending. This was removed by Bibi for 2019 as Bibi thought Sangiovese is elegant enough.
Fruit comes from three vineyard sites with 70-, 80- and 90-year-old vines, respectively.
The wine offers big intensity and beautifully lifted aromas and more textural support than we saw in the slightly thinner 2018 vintage. The bouquet reveals balsam herb, cassis, pressed rose, garden mint and crushed stone. Fruit from the southern-most site, Poggio Matto in Casciano del Murlo (in the province of Siena), was blended in at a greater percentage to help build the structure and momentum of this cellar-worthy wine.
