The San Lorenzo from Castello di Ama is fantastic in 2019, so elegant from start to finish. The wine offers a complex array of aromas – cherry, rosehip and blackberry confit matched with a sweeter touch of vanilla, dry spice and red peppercorns from some top-quality oak. The tannins are so refined for a Sangiovese-dominant wine, while retaining the variety’s vibrant acidity that brings a brightness and freshness to the palate. The mid-palate plushness of fruit is also impressive for this cuvée, which is not always this rich. There’s great length to the finish, with lingering blackberry notes that showcase the quality of the fruit in this vintage.
