This outstanding Super Tuscan has been aged in French barriques for 24 months by award winning Tenuta San Jacopo. It has a complex nose of black cherry, dried flowers, and sweet Asian spices. Balsamic and liquorice flavours round out the palate, which is full of sinewy tannins. Intense, full-bodied, with a long fruity finish. Cabernet - Merlot - Sangiovese is the composition of many of the so-called Super Tuscan wines of central Italy. The blend can be made to any number of variations, but this combination draws on the rustic, sour-cherry tang of Sangiovese (50%), the sweet, juicy fruit flavors of Merlot (30%) and the power and structure of Cabernet Sauvignon (20%). Pair with grilled meat, hard cheeses and comfort food! Suitable for vegetarians and vegans.
Grape: Merlot 30%, Sangiovese 50%, Cabernet Sauvignon 20%
Winemaker: Tenuta san Jacopo
About the Producer
Tenuta San Jacopo is situated in Tuscany, between the classic Chianti area and the Valdarno covering 130 hectares of vineyards, olive groves and woods. Back in 2002, three brothers from Milan, Vanni, Carlo and Marco Cattaneo bought this estate with the aim of restoring it back to its former glory. Their aim was to produce great wines, elegant and refined, respecting the special terroir of the vineyards as well as running a succesful agriturismo. Certified Organic methods are used to take care of the land, the vines, and the grapes. These are then hand-harvested in small baskets, then sorted again at the winery and destalked before going into stainless or wood fermentation tanks (depending on the cuvee). The end results are lovely, earthy old-school renditions of Chianti.
