Vinous Reverie Notes
Winery: Super Tuscans began to reach prominence in the 80’s, when wine growers in Tuscany, and especially Bolgheri, the most Northwest region of Tuscany, began to blend Sangiovese with other noble grapes, especially Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Super Tuscans became a worldwide sensation and enjoyed pricing significantly higher than primarily Sangiovese based wines. Our Super Tuscan spends time in new hand-selected single mill American oak from Minnesota. Cabernet Sauvignon, the primary fruit of this blend adds the tastes of dark fruit while the Sangiovese adds cherry, cranberry and sour cherry interest. The Oak adds vanilla overtones, combining with rich earth aromas. This is a very full-bodied wine with a delightful, long-lasting finish and a big, full mouth feel. It is a hearty wine.
