26 Apr Rare Aged Super Tuscan
We’ve got an amazing deal on an aged out, ready to drink Italian gem! This comes DIRECTLY to us from the winery so the provenance is perfect. Mature wines like this gem are balanced with dried fruit and herbs. Loads of earthy complexities and silky tannin. What a great opportunity to back fill the cellar while the younger wines age, or a great way to introduce yourself to this more rare style of wine.
2001 Fattoria La Ripa “Santa Brigida,” Toscana Rosso IGT
On Sale $49.99
Black color, with intense aroma of blackberries, violets and black olives. Full-bodied, with big, velvety tannins and a long, long finish. Very impressive. Stylish, with soul. Back on form. Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon. Best after 2006. 1,800 cases made.
