Available Red Blend 2015
Aged in French oak barrels (20% new)
This 2015 Red Blend is ruby red in color with a deep purple hue. On the nose are intense aromas of ripe red berries, cherries and strawberries, followed by hints of wild flowers, crushed herbs and licorice. It's a medium-bodied blend that starts with ripe red fruit, dried earth and pomegranate on the palate, complemented with soft and supple tannins, making this an easy drinking, approachable wine.
The 2015 harvest in Puglia, Italy experienced unusual weather conditions – both high and low temperature extremes. It was a late and long harvest season. Meticulous farming combined with a longer growing season resulted in a complex wine. The long maturation period led to high quality and more aromatics. Puglia, in general, produces richer Sangiovese. This wine is no exception - it is layered with aromas and flavors and is overall a very intriguing yet approachable wine.
Varietal: 50% Sangiovese, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot
