The Barbaneras have done it again.
Their sumptuous Super Tuscan red is truly super in every sense – now more than ever. Aged for 18 months in fine French oak, it’s a classic blend of ripe, red-fruited Sangiovese and deep, black-fruited Cabernet Sauvignon. The last three vintages have been critical smash-hits, with 99-, 98-, and 97-point ratings for previous releases from Italy’s top wine critic Luca Maroni. And along comes the 2014 release …
Boasting another 99 points from Maroni (he called it "an absolute masterpiece"), the 2014 also dazzled judges at Berliner Wein Trophy, who gave it a gold medal.
You’ll see what the fuss is all about as soon as you open a bottle for yourself – it’s brimming with loads of ripe black fruit character, balanced with complex nuances of baking spices and earth; smooth and velvety tannins introduce a mile-long finish. It’ll be especially delicious with hearty pasta dishes or a thick cut of steak.
