Commended in the Decanter World Wine Awards.
This organic, deep ruby red Super Tuscan is characterised by rich, lingering aromas suggesting wild red berries and spice. It is harmonious and balanced on the palate. Matured for at least 12 months in French Allier oak barriques, followed by further bottle-ageing, this is a very distinctive wine suited for lengthy cellaring.
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 power and structure of Cabernet Sauvignon (30%), the sweet, juicy fruit flavors of Merlot (10%) and the rustic, sour-cherry tang of Sangiovese (60%).
Excellent when paired with red meat, game and roast meats.

Produced by: Tenuta San Vito
In 1985, the Tenuta San Vito was the first wine-growing estate in Tuscany to switch to organic production, It is remarkably large, measuring 150 hectares, approximately 30 hectares of which contain vines and 20 hectares olive trees. The rest is forest, which surrounds the entire estate. Situated in the hills of the Chianti Colli Fiorentini, 18 kilometres from Florence, it is secluded and far away from noise and traffic.
Since 1985, all of San Vito's products have been certified by the A.I.A.B. (Associazione Italiana Agricoltura Biologica), and the winery is a member of I.F.O.A.M. (International Federation of Organic Agricoltural Movement). The current certifying authority is I.C.E.A. (Istituto per la Certificazione Etica ed Ambientale), which ensures observance of the E.U. 2092/91 regulation and international norms.
San Vito's observance of organic farming means that it uses only substances derived from organic minerals, both for fertilisers and anti-pest treatments. This allows the soil to maintain its productive capacity without leaving any chemical residues in the soil or in the wines.
