2016 Il Rinnegati - $67.50 *after club discount
Our version of a “Super Tuscan”! Modeled after the Italian wines that became famous in the 1980s for using non-Italian grape varietials.
Il Rinnegati is a blend of 65% Sangiovese, 31% Merlot, and 4% Syrah.
We aged this wine for 2 years in a combination of 40% new French oak barrels and puncheons and it is released a year after bottling.
This wine is full of spicy black cherry and dried strawberry notes with elegant tannins that complement the mid-weight body. It has a remarkably complex and resounding finish.
