Our finest Super Tuscan style wine, made from the Brunello Grosso Sangiovese Grape. It encompasses all that is great about Napa Sangiovese, mountain grown grapes are picked at the peak of ripeness. Blended with clone 2 Cabernet Sauvignon and Petite Verdot for balance and structure. Affectionately named after our Wine maker's Father.
Tobacco and cedar nose integrated harmoniously with sweet spice. Ripe Cherry, raspberry and dark plum is integrated into this muscular frame. Velvet tannins allow for a long smooth finish. Classic Tuscan flavours with a riper Napa Valley twist, a great blind tasting wine.
The wine is aged 24 months in 100% new American oak barrels. Whole berries are cold soaked are fermented at low temperatures.
Food Pairing Notes
Super Tuscans and meat are best friends. Hearty Italian dishes like Osso bucco, pastas, lasagna, lamb shank and stews. This is a very dry wine so avoid too much spice.
Needs a very long decant to be enjoyed at its best.
Will cellar gracefully for 10-20 years.
