Tasting Note:

Salty, crisply fruited, wonderfully open and alluring red berry flavour. Notes of red cherry, raspberry and wild strawberry with fresh bitter sweet herbal touches. Not as ageworthy as the 2013, perhaps, but arguably giving a lot more pleasure in its youth. A vineyard of 420 metres altitude facing south west, this aspect was crucial in ensuring full grape ripening in the cooler 2014 vintage. The South-east facing Baron d’Ugo struggled to ripen and therefore was not made. A blend of 90% Sangiovese 7% Canaiolo and 3% Colorino from a 40 year old single vineyard, South West facing, planted on Albarese (hard limestone ) and Galestro (softer limestone ) soils. The wine is aged in large French and Slavonian oak casks for 26 months.
