Winemaker Notes

Intense aromas and flavors of black currant and bilberry. Notes of peach, plum and a touch of pepper on the palate meld with hints of vanilla from oak aging.

Pair with meat and game, and roasted or braised poultry such as chicken or duck.

Blend: 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Petit Verdot, 20% Cabernet Franc

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
TP 91
Tasting Panel
Lush and dense with smooth, concentrated flavors of plum, spice and soft herbs; rich, seamless and long, complex and balanced; vivid and lovely.
WS 90
Wine Spectator
Pure black currant and bilberry aromas and flavors course through this red, which is dense yet lively. Well-integrated oak peeks through on the finish, with an accent of vanilla. Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc.

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.
