2016 Romagna Sangiovese Superiore Riserva DOC 'Avi', San Patrignano, Emilia Romagna
Powerful ruby red with a garnet rim. The well-developed nose has overtones of ripe blackberries, violet, and spicy notes of clove and nutmeg. The palate is elegant, with the structure and velvety tannins of Sangiovese typical of the terroir. The pleasant sapidity leaves a finish with inviting hints of forest fruits, leather and liquorice.
