The 2006 La Corte is a single-vineyard Sangiovese. It shows the darker side of the grape in its black fruit and imposing, powerful personality. The tannins bruise the palate from start to finish in this intense, full throttle wine. Ultimately, I find a little less finesse here than in some of the estates other wines. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2026.”,,,
