2016 Il Rinnegati 3L
Il Rinnegati pays homage to the Tuscan winemakers who dared to break the rules. Bound by appelation laws Tuscan winemakers who wanted to make world class blends that defied convention had no choice but to declassify their wines to the IGT level which at the time was only used for cheap table wine. These wines became known as Super Tuscan blends and have since rivaled the great wines of the world.
This wine defies convention and redefines what is possible in Oregon wine. A blend of 65% Sangiovese 31% Merlot and 4% Syrah. Aged for two years in a combination of French barrel and puncheon 40% new.
Here's to the Renegade in all of us!
