2013 Belguardo Tenuta Maremma Toscana

$61.00

The highly esteemed Mazzei family, owners of Castello di Fonterutoli, recognized the potential in the area where the Belguardo estate resides. Today, the Mazzei family has reaped the benefits of the Belguardo Estate’s growing area, where Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc are grown successfully. The Belguardo Maremma is a rustic blend of 90% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Cabernet Franc, which has been aged 18 months in French oak (70% new) and 10 months in bottle. A deep ruby red with purple highlights, it emits bold notes of dark fruit, smoke and toast, with hints of spice on the palate.
