As a tribute to their Italian heritage, this 2016 Super Tuscan-style Red Blend is a reflection of Italy’s grape varietals with the added twist of Paso Robles’ unique terroir. This style arose in the 1970’s out of rebellion against Italy’s strict regulations, which limited winemakers to producing Chianti and stifled their creativity. Thankfully these illegally-made wines found their place in history.

This 2016 Cuore Della Vigna (Heart of the Vineyard) boasts strawberry and ripe cherry scents that evolve to reveal an earthy undertone. Palate-wise, a complex profile of ripe berries, peppery spice, ginger and chocolate laced with caramelized sugar offer a true taste adventure. Excellent balance leads to a marvelous finish that lingers for some time.
