2016 SINALUNGA, Magnum

2016 SINALUNGA, Magnum

This Sinalunga wine is a Super Tuscan blend epitomizing the love, passion, quality, attention to detail, and dedication that went into the making of Castello di Amorosa. Named for the small Tuscan commune near Siena which inspired Dario Sattui to construct the Castello, this exceptional, limited-production wine is symbolic of the castle itself, a crowning achievement. The Term “Super Tuscan” in Italy describes a complex, high-quality wine which goes “outside the rules” of traditional wine classifications and blends, and we are proud to work with Italian winemaker Sebastiano Rosa of Tenuta San Guido and Sassicaia fame, on crafting this exceptional Napa Valley Super Tuscan.

A Super Tuscan blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Sangiovese sourced primarily from hillside vineyards in the Ruthorford viticultural area of Napa Valley, an area famous for producing layered and complex Cabernet Sauvignon. This balanced and opulent wine presents notes of tobacco, leather, and classic “Rutherford dust” with structured tannins and a silky, lingering finish.

Ratings
"I love the big cassis and forest-berry nose of this rather concentrated and velvety red blend that features a neat balance of fleshiness, supple tannins and lively acidity. You could rink this with food now, but the vitality on the palate suggests good aging potential, so drink or hold. - James Suckling, 92 Points
Winemaker Notes
"Following the very small 2015 harvest, it was heartening to see the vines recover and bounce back to produce not only extremely high quality fruit but also some bounty in 2016! Harvest was earlier than we expected, and we observed optimum flavor and phenolic development progress as we harvested. Across the board, the flavors and acids were exceptional, and a delicious balance evolved as the harvest proceeded. Acids are firm and pH is slightly lower, so the wines should be well-structured with very good aging potential. This is an exciting vintage with a lot to like! —Brooks Painter, Director of Winemaking” - Brooks Painter, Director of Winemaking
Food Pairing Notes
This bold single vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon pairs beautifully with filet mignon, roast duck, or venison with wild mushrooms.
