It appears medium to deep ruby with good tears. On the nose offers a complex mix of morello cherries, sanguinello oranges, violets, earth, tobacco, chocolate nibs, haematic/mineral notes. Such a richness and NO BARRIQUE! Oh! Wonderful What the Lamole Terroir can do!! On the palate is dry, with med tannins, med+ acidity, medium alcohol, med to med+ body with very good concentrated dusty mid palate and  medium+ finish.
Outstanding quality, a step up with respect to 2010 vintage. Amazing for the price tag!  Drink Now or hold 10+ years.  90% Sangiovese, 10% Canaiolo, Greve in Chainti, Tuscany, Italy.
