Why we love it
This is am outstanding super Tuscany made with Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Sangiovese grapes, aged in French barrique for 24 months from our award winning Chianti producer: Tenuta San Jacopo.
The result is a red wine with a complex fruit and spicy nose with hints of cherry and mature black fruit, tobacco and liquorices. In the mouth, it is full, warm, velvety with fruity flavors, very balanced and with a never ending aftertaste.
This wine is suitable for vegans.
The artisan who made it
At the beginning of the century, three brothers from Milan, Vanni, Carlo and Marco Cattaneo , bought a decadent Tenuta San Jacopo (an 18th century estate) with the idea of bringing it back to its former glory. Their goal was to produce “great Tuscan and Chianti” wines, elegant and refined. They restored the old vines and then planted new ones wherever restoration wasn’t possible and they decided to follow organic cultivation methods. As well as quality wines, the estate also produces a very limited quantity of organic olive oil which they obtain from the olive trees surrounding the vineyards.
