2016 Il Nonno

Estate Grown, Cellared & Bottled

“Il Nonno” – Italian for granddaddy … old, wise, loved, temperamental, respected.

Moody, dark purple in color, the nose fills with earthy aromas of blackberries, cherries, pepper and a hint of cassis. On the palate it is a lovely, yet well balanced and nuanced wine reminiscent of old world Italy, with blackberry, plum, tobacco and earthy aromas and flavors followed by a lingering long finish.

Vineyard Notes

The best of Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon, Petite Sirah and Syrah grapes from our estate vineyards have been blended to create this intense “Super Tuscan” old world style wine.

Pairings

Will pair well with classic Italian fare such as ossobucco, Florentine steak with tomato sauce or beef braised in garlic and red wine.
