Elegance, character, and persistence are what make Millecento 2015 a wine for the ages. The barrel aging emphasized the characteristics of the vintage, enhancing the Sangiovese aromas, wonderful balance, and superb tannins. A great acidity supports the superb aging potential.
“The wine preserved the acidic crispness that keeps it very young – thanks to the pH level. At the same time, we can perceive its extraordinary longevity, thanks to a very long finish. Notes of soil and graphite are combined with delicate hints of violets and cedar. The mouthfeel is enhanced by a great balance and an incredible length of drinking.” – Cecilia Leoneschi, October 2021
