2014 Belguardo Tirreno

$30.00

The Belguardo estate, tucked among the Grosseto and Montiano hills, about six miles inland from Italy’s west coast, is home to their estate grown Tirreno, which is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Alicante and Petit Verdot. This unique expression begins with hand harvested grapes that undergo temperature-controlled fermentation in stainless steel tanks, finishing with 12 months in French oak barrels. This wine opens up with notes of ripe, red cherries, lavender and herbal notes, leading into a firm palate with elegant notes of black currant and spice.


ABV % = 13.5
