For over 80 years, the Barbanera family have crafted world class wines. Their Super Tuscans, especially, are always BIG favorites with our customers and boast major international acclaim. (In fact, leading critic Luca Maroni called their flagship, Vecciano, “one of the all-time great Super Tuscans.”) Now, we’re pleased to present a special anniversary release ...
Otto Decenni (eight decades) is a sumptuous Super Tuscan that celebrates the Barbanera family’s winemaking history. Back in 1938, Altero Barbanera bought a small parcel of land in Tuscany’s Piazze region and started making wine for his family and friends. His son, Luigi, expanded the business, eventually passing it on to his sons, Marco and Paolo. Under their care, the Barbanera family estate has become of one of most respected in all of Tuscany.
Crafted by fourth-generation Sofia (Paolo’s daughter), Otto Decenni marries Sangiovese with Merlot, Syrah, and Petit Verdot. Patiently barrel aged, it’s a testament to the Barbaneras’ talents and overflows with luscious dark berry and chocolatey spice flavors. One sip and you’ll see why Luca Maroni rated it 99 points.
The Barbaneras hope you enjoy this limited-edition Super Tuscan at your own family meals. It’ll be delicious with juicy steaks, roasted game meats, or hearty pasta dishes.
