2016 SINALUNGA, Cabernet Sauvignon

2016 SINALUNGA, Cabernet Sauvignon

Our Limited Edition Cabernet Sauvignon is sourced from our top vineyards throughout Napa Valley. An exceptional Cabernet Sauvignon with excellent long-term aging potential. This limited edition Cab is only available for a limited time. 

"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

 

My love of the Sinalunga area prompted me to explore its back roads, medieval structures and outlying villages. Without this intense passion for the monastery and the Sinalunga area, it is likely the Castle would never have been built.

Thirty years later, this same passion has inspired me to craft an exceptional wine, in very limited quantities, to be honored with the name Sinalunga. This Super Tuscan blend epitomizes the love, passion, quality, dedication, and attention to detail that went into the making of Castello di Amorosa. 

I am proud to present Sinalunga: a wine symbolic of the Castle itself, a crowning achievement. " - Dario Sattui

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.
