(60% Sangiovese, 20% Syrah, 20% Merlot)

"The estate’s top bottling, the 2006 Rosso di Valgiano offers greater richness and density. Smoke, tar, menthol, licorice and leather all add complexity to the wine’s core of super-ripe dark fruit. This is an intense, brooding red that will benefit from at least another few years in bottle. Rosso di Valgiano is 60% Sangiovese, 20% Merlot and 20% Syrah. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2021.

Tenuta di Valgiano is located near Lucca, in the northern reaches of Tuscany. The wines are made in an intense, fruit-driven style." (WA)

Winery Notes:
A nose that expresses elegance and aromatic refinement. Fragrant aromas of ripe fruit with hints of spices and minerals, an intense and enduring bouquet. The volume on the palate is delightful with the pleasants sweetness of the fruit, the structure develops with a dense texture of mature, soft tannins that ensure length and a pleasantly delicious aftertaste. A balanced, high-class wine that will develop over the next twenty years.
