This wine isn't trying to hide ANYTHING. It's all there on the first sniff, reporting for duty. Cherry pie with butter crust, ripe red berries, fuji apple, dried apricot, and fancy strawberry jam. All the notes of Sangiovese are taken to the extreme. Serve this properly chilled and give it a little time to open up (but not too much time that you lose the fantastic bubbles!) and you will be rewarded with a big, but gentle and lovely sipping experience.
