In Tuscany, it’s all about who you know. Our friend (now yours) Franco Bernabei is a wine legend who consults at all the top estates – he’s known as ‘Mr. Sangiovese’ for his deft skill with Italy’s flagship red. So, when one of his very best clients had a special, one-off parcel of stellar-vintage Super Tuscan to sell, Franco gave us a call.
The only condition? We can’t reveal the name of the estate. It has a high-price image to protect and regular customers who are used to paying a lot more than you. We can tell you that this is a seriously elegant red that is sure to impress (especially with hearty Italian fare).
A classic Super Tuscan blend of Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, this premium red shows all the class of Tuscany’s exceptional 2011 vintage. Look forward to an intense ruby color in the glass, with ripe blackberry and spice aromas. Twenty months in fine oak adds vanilla-spice notes to the rich, dark-fruit core.
Only SIX barrels of this special Super Tuscan exist. Order your share before we run out.
