2016 Super Tuscan

2016 Super Tuscan

Italian Style Blend


Cart Total:  $0.00
About This Wine:
 Reminiscent of the great Chianti Classicos of Central Italy, this rich, medium-bodied wine is a tribute to the creativity of our talented wine-making team, who were given complete freedom of expression in the vinification process, aging and final blending. It is made up of 60% Sangiovese (from Machado Creek), 30% Tempranillo (from Clements Hills) 5% Cabernet Sauvignon (From Saratoga), & 5% Graciano (from Clements Hills). The Sangiovese contributes the bright red fruit characteristics, while the Tempranillo and Cabernet Sauvignon enhance its color, body and complexity of flavors, producing a wine with exceptional balance and a greater capacity for aging. 18 months of barrel-aging in French oak (60% new barrels) adds a seductive layer of sweet tobacco and vanilla spice, and helps to soften the robust tannins. This vintage possesses a firm backbone of acidity, which cleanses the palate after a bite of food, making it the perfect companion to a variety of hearty Italian dishes. It is ready for drinking now, but will continue to mature gracefully through 2028.
