Podere Sapaio Sapaio 2017
|Region||Italy, Tuscany, Bolgheri|
Ruby red in color with light purple hues, complex aromas of wild berries, violets, spice and a so note of oak provided by barrique aging. It is a full-bodied, rich and velvety wine.
A concentrated, muscular style, this features dusty black currant, black cherry, plum, rosemary and iron aromas and flavors. Firms up as the finish plays out, with lively acidity and a complex aftertaste. Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc. Best from 2024 through 2045. 1,200 cases made, 300 cases imported.
Cassis, cedar and mocha aromas form the nose on this blend of organically farmed Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. The concentrated palate delivers ripe black currant, licorice and black pepper alongside firm, close-grained tannins. Drink 2023-2029.
