Tasting Notes: Our Super Tuscan is rustic, deep and dense from start to finish. The blend opens with heavy blackfruit aromas along with cedar, baking spice and tobacco. Its rich and chewy palate is cushioned by pleasing notes of boysenberry, plum, dried cherries and hazelnuts. Supple acids and tannins allow for a long, juicy finish. Drink now or cellar for the next 8-10 years.
Vinification: Blended with 43% Sangiovese, 22% Malbec, 19% Merlot and 16% Cabernet Sauvignon, and aged in French oak barrels for 16 months. Each varietal went through malolactic fermentation and was aged separately until the final blend.
