Pizzini Pietra Rossa Sangiovese 2014

Such a delicious Sangiovese! I tasted this alongside a Sangio a few years older and it is easy to see the path this is walking.

Earthy and savoury characters are king here. Tucked in behind sit shavings of chocolate, plums, expected cherries and dried twigs. Time in the glass brings out purple flower aromas and a hint of baking spice.

Generous and moreish, tannins play a soft tune riding this all the way to a long and most enjoyable finish.

Drink now to eight years.

92/100 - Very good.
