    Darkly floral and earthy upon opening, the 2018 Rosso San Valentino slowly evolves with hints of crushed ashen stone and dusty dried flowers giving way to crushed black raspberries. The palate dials the energy up high, sleek and racy with vibrant red berry fruits accentuated by rosy inner florals and touches of citrus. It finishes with tremendous length, a licorice tinge, and a coating of fine tannins, framing the experience remarkably well. This is a Rosso San Valentino that will excel upon release but also through medium-term cellaring.
