2009 LA CASTELLANA, Super Tuscan Blend

2009 LA CASTELLANA, Super Tuscan Blend

Full and brilliant red-black color, showing very rich aromatics combining savory Tuscan herbs, fresh red cherry, pomegranate, with mocha, wild berry and currants on the nose.  Feminine, yet structured with sweet, focused red plum notes and hints of cranberry from the Sangiovese mingle with the expansive, spicy black pepper and black cherry of the Bordeaux varietals. It is an elegant, complex wine, with good depth, volume and balanced with velvety tannins providing length and a smooth, lingering texture.


♦ Rich Cook, WineReviewOnline (92 Points)

"This is a big, structured wine that needs some time to integrate and evolve, but a recent sample shows exciting promise.  Blackberry, cherry, red meat and dried herbs are beginning to peek through the dense tannin and acid profile, and some time in the glass really brings out the aromatics.  I’d bet on this being a trophy wine in five or six years from now."

♦ Roger Beery, Bacchus and Beery (91 Points)

"Give this baby 30 minutes to an hour in a decanter to reach its masculine greatness. A rich bouquet of dark cherry, raspberry, and dark spice. A full mouth-feel with balanced tannins and moderate acidity. Flavors of black cherry, blackberry, red fruit, toasty vanilla spice, and new oak. A long, rich finish with hints of cafe mocha."

♦ Martin Redmond, Enofylz (90 Points)

"Ruby red color with inviting cassis, black cherry, cedarwood, and dried rose aromas. On the palate, it’s medium bodied and persistent with vibrant acidity, and dusty well integrated sweet tannins. It shows cassis, blackberry, and spice flavors underscored by an appealing minerality. Drinking well now, but should be even better with aging!"

Tasting Notes
Our Lady steps out more boldly than her older sisters with subtle fruit and earthy notes on the palate. Deep flavors of dark cherry and strong tannins ensure a bold character and a strong finish on the palate. She will soften and drink her best with a few more years cellaring. Capable of long term aging.

Winemaker Notes
We craft each new vintage of our La Castellana Super Tuscan blend with the help of famed Italian winemaker Sebastiano Rosa. His family's winery, Sassicaia, laid the foundation for Super Tuscan wines in Italy, which now comprise some of the most famous wines in the world.
Food Pairing Notes
This elegant "Super Tuscan" wine goes well with lamb, sausage, grilled steak, Venison or a great pasta dish such as Pappardelle with wild boar (Dario's favorite).
