This velvety smooth red blend is comprised of four Italian varietals: Sangiovese, Primitivo, Dolcetto, and Barbera, all sourced from the winery's Hopland Ranches in Mendocino County. Quadriga actually translates to "a chariot drawn by four horses abreast," and accurately names this four-varietal blend.
Soft and open in style, the 2009 Quadriga shows a breadth of bright wild berry flavors, dark cherry nuances, and violet aromatics that beautifully complement each other from start to finish. This wine is balanced and approachable with fascinating flavors from Brutocao's Old World vineyards.
