Riotorto LI, Italy (Tuscany)
Valle delle Stelle
89% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Cabernet Franc
This estate bottling proudly represents the organic vineyards with value and exceptional quality. Less than one mile from the Mediterranean sea, the ocean air keeps the alcohol in check with an energetic and vibrant style. This Cabernet is full of dark fruits and black cherry, complemented by black pepper spice and savory undertones of grilled herbs, earth, and smoke. A small percentage of Cabernet Franc highlights these spice notes.
