Why We Love This Wine:
The producers are a small, family run business with a love for food and wine. The entire portfolio highlights wines aimed to please the entire dinner table and offers our wine collectors a wine they'll be asking "where's the corkscrew, we need another."
Sommelier Tasting Notes:
Tesoro (a treasure) is a proprietary blend consisting of 52% Sangiovese, 26% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 22% Syrah. Led by its striking dark crimson hue, this Super Tuscan style wine opens with aromas of ripe berries and black fruits, interwoven with hints of vanilla, caramel, raw tobacco, leather, clove, blood orange peel, and roasted walnuts.
On the palate, the rich and generous flavors of briary blackberry, dark cherry, ripe plum, cassis, and red pear are enhanced with nuances of wild sage, cinnamon, black pepper, dark chocolate, and a kiss of fine oak. As the wine opens in the glass, the smooth velvety texture is balanced with bright acidity, supple tannins, and firm structure.
The result is a stylish proprietary blend that is robust, elegant, and showy in its youth, and strengthened by layers of complexity, natural richness, and backbone that will allow the personality of the wine to expand in the cellar.
Wine Pairing Suggestions:
A fantastic wine to pair with a slightly smokey gouda, herbaceous genoa salami, and slow roasted pork shoulder and beef tenderloin. A hearty stew or Osso Buco are some other favorite dishes Michael Muscardini highly recommends pairing this robust blend with
