2018 SINALUNGA, Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley

2018 SINALUNGA, Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley

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.

 

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 Cabernet 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

ACCOLADES

Jeb Dunnuck (97 Points)

"Lots of cassis, graphite, lead pencil, and scorched earth notes emerge from the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Sinalunga, another powerful, concentrated 2018 from Castello di Amorosa. One of the more structured, tannic wines in the lineup, it has full-bodied richness, a wonderfully pure, layered texture, and terrific balance. Bottles need a good 4-6 years of bottle age, but it should evolve for 30 years or more."

Blackberry jam, spice, licorice, lavender, vanillin gravel and chocolate are front and center in this heady, potent Napa Valley red. I would give the tannins a few years to soften. There is plenty to look forward to." - 93 Points, Antonio Galloni "Spiced plums, morello cherries, cloves and licorice on the nose. It’s medium-bodied with sleek tannins. Juicy and fresh with plenty of berries and spice. Drink or hold." - 92 Points, James Suckling
Vineyard Notes
A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon fruit sourced primarily from top vineyards in the Rutherford AVA of Napa Valley, an area famous for producing layered and complex Cabernet Sauvignon.
Production Notes
Sinalunga is a wine 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
Winemaker Notes
February saw abundant rains, followed by lots of filtered light in spring and early summer. Both bud break and flowering occurred a bit late, but under ideal weather conditions, creating plentiful and even fruit set. Summer brought generous sun during the day and cooler marine influences, virtually uninterrupted by major heat spikes. The relatively mild summer followed by extended fall sunshine and moderate heat created near– ideal conditions for our winemakers to allow their fruit to accumulate flavor complexity with gradual increases in sugar levels.
Food Pairing Notes
This bold limited edition Cabernet Sauvignon pairs beautifully with filet mignon, roast duck, or venison with wild mushrooms.
Other Notes
15-25 Years Cellaring
