Ripe fruit aromas with subtle hints of leather and mushrooms. Dry with medium-plus body, medium acidity, and a persistent finish.
Aged in 20% new French oak balanced by neutral American and French oak. “Super Tuscan” is a term used to describe wines produced in Italy that do not adhere to the strict wine laws of that country. These bolder bodied wines were first created in the 1970’s when Italian winemakers wanted to experiment with other types of wines besides Chianti. These wines are created by merging combinations of Cabernet, Merlot and Sangiovese grapes. As a result of their variety, they easily pair with a wide range of food.
Food Pairing Notes
Pair with a substantial seafood stew or any vegetable pasta dish with deep, complex flavors.
