' Quintessential - American Super Tuscan Blend

American Super Tuscan Blend 2017


This Italian-inspired blend offers rich and complex aromas of Italian plums, spice, dark cherries, black pepper and herbs. The palate follows the aromas, with added notes of ripe blackberries and mocha, with an unctuous and silky mouthfeel. This wine has good body and structure from the first sip to the lengthy and enjoyable finish.

Wine Facts

Winemaker Notes
This red blend immediately pleases with its rich, complex aromas. This might be expected, knowing the grapes come from many top sources. The majority of the Sangiovese grapes come from a highly-regarded Calistoga vineyard, that has a Southeast facing, well- drained, volcanic soil, while the Cabernet Sauvignon grapes are from three different areas of Napa Valley. Two of these areas are the Oakville and Diamond Mountain AVA’s, with the Oakville vines having a Southwest facing and alluvial soil but the Diamond Mountain vines sit on well-drained rocky, volcanic soils facing the South. These Sangiovese grapes add brightness to the fruit and bring a roundness to the wine, softening the “Big tannins” of the Cabernet, that gives this wine its “Broad Shoulders” and structure.
