Winemaker's Notes

This Super Tuscan is a blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot, and Alicante Bouschet.

Cavalli expresses the bond with Tuscan wine tradition by combining the family's gift for creativity and passion for wine. Each vintage of Cavalli Tenuta degli Dei "wears" its own distinctive print from the family's renowned fashion house on its label as a way of distinguishing between vintages.

Tenuta degli Dei has been owned by Tommaso and Roberto Cavalli for well over thirty years. Their winemakers, Gioia Cresti and Carlo Ferrini – Wine Enthusiast's 2007 winemaker of the year – have worked together since 1998. The estate is located in the village of San Leolino, near Panzano in Chianti, one of the loveliest regions in the Tuscan countryside.

Critical Acclaim

"This super Tuscan is designed by fashion icon Roberto Cavalli who owns the Tenuta degli Dei estate in Tuscany. The blend sees Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc resulting in a dense, rich and opulent red wine that is redolent of mature fruit and spice."
91 Points

"Shows berry, rosemary and prune aromas, turning to raspberry. Full-bodied, with an intense fruity character, soft tannins and a clean finish. Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot, Cabernet Franc and Alicante. Best after 2010. 1,990 cases made."

Style: Big & Bold
A voluptuous wine. It has a smoky, tobacco element and is very full-bodied and warm. We drank it on Father's Day. It is a very sexy super Tuscan.
