Super-Tuscan Style

Gold Medal - 2022 San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition

Led by its striking dark crimson hue, this Super Tuscan style wine opens with aromas of ripe berries and black fruits, with hints of vanilla, caramel, raw tobacco, leather, clove, blood orange peel, and roasted walnuts.  On the palate, the rich and generous flavors of briary blackberry, dark cherry, ripe plum, cassis, and red pear are enhanced with nuances of wild sage, cinnamon, black pepper, dark chocolate, and a kiss of fine oak.  As the wine opens in the glass, the smooth velvety texture is balanced with bright acidity, supple tannins, and firm structure.

The result is a stylish proprietary blend that is robust, elegant, and showy in its youth, and strengthened by layers of complexity, natural richness, and backbone that will allow the personality of the wine to expand in the cellar.

Pair with a slightly smokey gouda, herbaceous genoa salami, and slow roasted pork shoulder and beef tenderloin. A hearty stew or Osso Buco are some other favorite dishes highly recommended with this robust blend.
