In the growing tradition of Super Tuscan blends, Martin & Weyrich’s 2005 Cabernet Etrusco is a blend of primarily Cabernet Sauvignon with a bit of Sangiovese. These blends are growing in popularity because of the synergy between the darker lush fruit flavors of Cabernet Sauvignon and the brighter red berry and cherry characteristics of Sangiovese.

The inclusion of Sangiovese, the ancient red grape of Tuscany, led to Martin & Weyrich’s use of the name ‘Etrusco,’ as the Etruscans first farmed this varietal in the rustic hillsides of Italy's countryside more than 2,000 years ago. The Cabernet Estrusco displays a unique complexity of flavors, from the baked cherry notes on the nose to the plum, cherry, and spice characters on the palate. Chocolate covered berries with earthy undertones appear on the finish, and the wine’s excellent acidity makes it a great choice for a number of entrées.

Try pairing the Martin & Weyrich 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon ‘Etrusco’ with pepperoni pizza, lasagna, or a well-spiced barbequed steak.
