Castello di Verrazzano has played a memorable role in Tuscan winemaking and American history. Owners Luigi and Silvia Cappellini pour their passion into the estate, producing traditional wines that deservedly built an incredibly loyal following worldwide. Hand-harvested and fermented in small batches, the Particolare is deep rudy red in color with pronounced vanilla, blackberries, and oak on the nose. Elegant, rich, and silky with soft tannins and background notes of vanilla and chocolate. Pour a glass and pair with garlic & rosemary marinated hanger steak or Lamb chops with a balsamic reduction.
