This wine presents a dark wall of inky concentration with aromas of ripe fruit and raw cherry. There are earthy tones in the background that are characteristic of Sangiovese, with floral and menthol nuances as well. The tannins are firm and polished.
La Collina dei Lecci offers a clean but compact Riserva Brunello with bright bursts of white cherry and forest berry followed by light accents of smoke and spice. With medium intensity and structure, this food-friendly alternative would match risotto or pasta.
Subtle aromas of dark fruit and leather give this wine a measured and timid first approach. The intensity builds with each swirl of the glass and the wine shows that typical Sangiovese Grosso tightness and acidity on the close.
