Il Granaio 2016, Super Tuscan style Sangiovese blend, 1.5L
Il Granaio (Italian for The Barn) is our bottling of a "Super Tuscan" style wine; Sangiovese blended with nontraditional varietals. Our 2016 Il Granaio is 77% Sangiovese, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Merlot and 4% Petit Verdot. The wine was barrel aged for 25 months to integrate the varietals and add depth. Though ready to drink in the near term, its rich, ripe flavors will reward further cellaring.

Enjoy classic Sangiovese characteristics, starting with the appealing rustic, dusty aromas of dark-toned red fruit and earth notes.

The palate fills with blackberry, ripe dark cherry, tart plum and dried cranberry woven with accents of spicy cedar and sage. The flavors fuse into an elegant harmony that lingers into a long finish.
