Bivio Tuscan Red 2006
ORIGIN: Sourced from highly-acclaimed vineyards in southern Tuscany, the grapes prosper in the well-draining, high altitude hills where they develop body and fullness.
Crafted with hand-picked grapes from Italy’s most prestigious wine regions, Bivio Italia reveals Italy's renowned winemaking tradition in its own refreshingly modern style. Winemaker Christian Scrinzi creates richly textured, elegantly balanced wines with an emphasis on eliciting full, fresh fruit flavors. His wines seamlessly integrate old and new world styles, the hallmark of Bivio Italia Wines.
Legendary in Italy for its Renaissance art and striking landscape, Tuscany is also home to many of the country’s best red wines. Sangiovese reigns supreme here, as either the single varietal, or a dominant player, in almost all of Tuscany’s best.
A remarkable Chianti, named for its region of origin, will have a bright acidity, supple tannins and plenty of cherry fruit character. From the hills and valleys surrounding the medieval village of Montalcino, come the distinguished and age-worthy wines based on Brunello (Sangiovese). Earning global acclaim since the 1970s, the Tuscan Blends are composed solely of international grape varieties or a mix of international and Sangiovese. The wine called Vine Nobile di Montepulciano, composed of Prognolo Gentile (Sangiovese) and is recognized both for finesse and power.
