2007 LA CASTELLANA, Super Tuscan Blend

2007 LA CASTELLANA, Super Tuscan Blend

La Castellana (The Lady of the Castle) is an elegant, complex wine, with good depth, volume and balanced with very velvety tannins providing length and a smooth, lingering texture.

92 Points - Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate

A wax sealed bottle is a beautiful addition to your wine rack, but can be intimidating when it comes time to open it.  This is easier than you may think!  Simply plunge your corkscrew through the wax, as if it were not even there.  Lift the cork slightly and wipe any wax crumbles from the opening.  Pull the cork the rest of the way out and enjoy!

Tasting Notes
Super Tuscan blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Sangiovese. 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.

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).

Other Notes
Beginning as early as the late 1960s, a few winemakers in Tuscany attempted to make more complex red wines by planting the classic Bordeaux red grape varieties. While they experimented with these wines as separate varietal blends excluding the regional variety, Sangiovese, they also tried omitting the small amount of the white variety “Malvasia bianca” traditionally added to Sangiovese to produce “Chianti Classico” in lieu of a blend with Bordeaux varietals (namely, cabernet sauvignon and merlot) The term "Super Tuscan" describes a red wine made in this new style. It is aromatic and intense, with a character all its own. Italian examples of the Bordeaux reds from this region are Sassicaia, Ornellaia, and Tignanello, now some of the most revered wines in the world. Examples of the Bordeaux/Sangiovese blends are Guidalberto and Le Volte. La Castellana is similar in style to these wines.
