proper Cellaring recommendations
Our Sangiovese is made to age for 20–30 years in your cellar. Of course, there are some vintage-to-vintage variations to this recommendation. Wine should be stored horizontally at 55–57 degrees.

The opening nose of this wine is textbook Sangiovese. Strawberries and strawberry preserves dominate the fruit profile backed up by some beautiful floral notes and aromatics you would expect of an old-world Brunello or Chianti such as saddle leather and earth. The plate reveals the wine's youth as it is a big, tannic youngster on first taste. This gives way to impressive length, some chalky oak, with a fantastic cutting acidity, focus, and a burst of fruit that makes this wine's profile just explode with food. We're very proud to have this wine in the Leonetti stable, as it is so entirely different from our Bordeaux variety wines and yet so entirely attractive in those differences. We are also tremendously happy with out decision to add an extra 6 months of bottle age, further improving our Sangiovese program, already critically noted as the finest in the US, in not the New World!
