The 2013 Baron'Ugo is 99% Sangiovese with just a speck of Colorino and Canaiolo for good measure. Fruit is sourced from vineyards located some 560 meters above sea level. The firmness of the fruit plus its bursting acidity is very evident. This is a fantastic vintage with great potential for future aging. The finish offers elegance and grace with linear structure and direct appeal. There's a pretty note of moist earth or savory cigar on the finish that adds a momentary interlude of softness.
