This is settling into its stride now, with the tannins and acidity integrating with the supple texture, setting the stage for bright cherry, raspberry, sage and tar flavors. Still compact on the finish, with a lingering savory aftertaste. Drink now through 2023.
Wine Tasting Notes
With a dark ruby color, the Valadorna showcases aromas of dark Valrhona chocolate, roasted espresso beans, cedar, lead pencil shavings, and herbal floral notes that are balanced with a mineral and earth-driven character. On the palate the wine extends a dry and firm profile of juicy black plums with hints of spent coffee grinds opening up to a supple and savory mid palate which lingers. The fullness of the wine is defined by the elegance of the Valadorna Merlot vineyard and it unmistakably carries the mineral character of the Tuscan site.
85% Merlot, 8% Cabernet Franc, 7% Cabernet Sauvignon
