Mission Briefing

Codename:

Ciao, Cinghiali!

This is true Italian Super Tuscan, all the way. No overripe fruit, here. Typical of the best examples of a great Super Tuscan, this wine delivers beautiful balance and wonderfully elegant fruit flavors.

There is more acid on the palate than the nose would initially suggest, making the wine a perfect companion for most food pairings.

This beautiful and very highly recommended wine is one that our tasting panel did not want to spit out during our tasting. We recommend that you savor every last drop.

Tasting Profile

Look:

Very dark and clear, this wine shows hues of deepest crimson. At the edges, brilliant ruby catches the light when the wine is swirled.

Smell:

Seductive and voluptuous with roasted beet, earthy dired mushroom, dried cherry, subtle fresh lavender, cassis and a hint of dark mahogany.

Taste:

Subtle and elegant fruits, overall, with black plum skin, dried cherry, dried unsweetened cranberry, underripe blackberry.

Finish:

Long, fresh and bright, with subtle fruits that tail off to subtle dried flower petals and a hint of brown spice persist. At the end, the mouth is slightly dry and the lips nicely puckered.

Pairing:

Enjoy this wine with a perfectly grilled New York steak smothered in mushrooms.
