Vendetta 2018

The flight had gone smoothly, taking off from Paris on time and landing in Rome under a blazing April sun. The young man adjusted his tie nervously as he waited for his bag on the tarmac. Finally, on the last trolley, it appeared, with a huge dent in the leather-covered siding. He snatched the bag from the porter and flung the latches open, looking inside. Sighing with relief, he saw that the twenty vines he had brought home were all still intact. Quickly snapping the case shut, he hurried out to his waiting Alfa Romeo.

Tasting Notes
This blend highlights the bold cherry liqueur aromas of the Cabernet while nicely melding in the notes of fine red leather contributed by the Sangiovese. Medium-bodied on the palate, flavors of raspberry tart and plum jam linger as long as you will let them, inviting one to enjoy the next taste but also to contemplate this delicious, complex wine.
Winemaker Notes
Vendetta is our rendition of the now-classic Super Tuscan style, created in the 1970s by innovative Tuscan vintners who realized that their native grape, Sangiovese, could be enhanced by the addition of classic Bordeaux varieties like Cabernet Sauvignon. For the 2018 vintage, we created a rich yet enticing blend of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon and 30% Sangiovese.
Food Pairing Notes
A must with a classic Tuscan lamb and white bean stew.
