A wine of towering elegance, Summus is an extraordinary blend of Sangiovese (used regionally to make the famed Brunello di Montalcino) which contributes body; Cabernet Sauvignon, fruit and structure; and Syrah, elegance, character and a fruity bouquet. Each wine is individually vinified and aged one year in French oak barrique to develop its unique style, then masterfully interwoven with the others to achieve a rare dimension of taste.
Summus is characterized by a rich color and lively dance of ripe soft-fruit flavors. An additional 14-16 months of bottle-aging brings forth a fragrant bouquet of fruit, oak and spice. Summus marries well with all red meats, stews, hearty pasta dishes and cheeses.
