Winemaker's Notes:

Cabernet Sauvignon adds complexity and preserves the seductive texture of the mountain-grown Sangiovese, while a splash of Petit Verdot lengthens the finish. The remarkably dark ruby-red color betrays the mountain origins of this wine, while bright wild berry aromas interplay with exotic spice and explode across the entire palate. Amazingly mouth-filling and superbly rich on the mid-palate, the berry flavors seem to dance and then linger in an unbelievably lengthy finish. Beautifully balanced, the fresh fruit-packed personality of this Super-Tuscan blend marks this as a classic Bob Foley bring-your-toothbrush wine.
