Undici is full of black cherry fruit, deep and dark—the kind you find stuffed into a coat of bittersweet chocolate. The Cabernet Sauvignon brings up the sophistication with a hint of the briar that so characterizes the grape. Tannins are concentrated enough to structure such a rich wine, but round enough to not be the least dry.
So why Undici? It means "eleven" in Italian. When "This is Spinal Tap" was released in '84, we howled. You could cut the satire with a knife, but we KNEW these people! So, as a name for a wine that pushes flavor absolutely over the top, here's a tribute to one of our favorite "guilty pleasure" movies and a great wine. This one goes to eleven!
Blend: 85% Sangiovese, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon
