Wine Style Guide

Light & Fruity

Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.

Smooth & Supple

Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.

Earthy & Spicy

Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.

Big & Bold

Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.

Winemaker's Notes

A complex nose of spices, vanilla and firm fruit is followed on the palate by muscularity and a velvety dryness that lingers in the mouth.

Critical Acclaim

"Has blackberries and fresh mushrooms, with hints of flowers on the nose following through to a full body, with soft, silky tannins and a fresh finish. A little short, but outstanding nonetheless. Give it a little more bottle age. Best after 2009. 610 cases made."
90 Points

"Clandestino is a seductively ripe and full expression of Brunello and it successfully carries that depth and density to the back corners of the palate. It delivers bold flavors of cherry and liquid smoke that are lavished over tightly textured tannins."
90 Points
