Pure Sagrantino from younger vines on the property, this riotous red is an absolute bruiser with blockbuster fruit and monster tannins. A perfect sparring partner for a robust Italian feast, this brazen beauty will hold its own and come out on top. Aged for three years in steel and then oak, the resulting harmony just barely keeps all that power in check.

Vinous

The 2015 Rosso de Veo is monstrously intense yet wonderfully balanced, showing masses of crushed black cherry, balsamic spice, stone dust and wild, exotic florals on the nose. Velvety textures give way to ripe red and blue berries with a spicy-citrus twang, backed by stimulating acids, as saline-minerality saturates under a coating of liquid violets. This finishes long, staining the palate with fruit concentrate and grippy tannins, yet considering how structured this is, there’s a balance here that provides plenty of pleasure already. This is simply gorgeous and has a very bright future ahead of it.
