2017 Super Tuscan
Classic Italian Style Blend
Bronze Medal - 2020 SF International
Reminiscent of the great Chianti Classicos of Central Italy, this rich, medium-bodied wine is a tribute to the creativity of our talented wine-making team. It is made up of Sangiovese and Merlot. The Sangiovese contributes the bright red fruit characteristics, while the Merlot enhance its color, body and complexity of flavors. The varietals spent the first 12-months separate. The top barrels of Merlot and Sangiovese were selected based on flavor and resolve. These barrels were racked off their primary lees, blended together, then put back into premium oak barrels for a total of 24-months of oak aging. This vintage possess a smooth rich flavor with notes of herbs de Provence, ripe cherry, olive tapenade, cedar, cranberry, Italian blood orange and pork lardons. It is ready for drinking now but will continue to mature gracefully through 2028.
