BRANCATELLI

Riotorto LI, Italy (Tuscany)
VINET Domaine de la Quilla-Bottleshot_47

Valle delle Stelle

Toscana IGT

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.

WHY THIS WINE IS SPECIAL

Previously a chef and restaurateur, Giuseppe started from scratch with virgin land, organic from day one. Later joined by the famous winemaker from Sassicaia, Graziana Grassini, together they craft some of the most well-made and affordable Cabernet from the famous Maremma coast in Tuscany. In this tiny town of Riotorto, you will find a rural and rustic charm, expressed perfectly in this terroir driven wine.

Giuseppe Brancatelli

Toscana IGT

Syrah

Power, executed with finesse, is a hallmark of the terroir around Riotorto and the winemaking skill at Azienda Agricola Brancatelli. Here the minerality and savory flavors of Syrah shine bright. Blackberry, dark cherry, and currant give way to smoky, meaty flavors, grilled herbs, forest floor, and spice. A sapidity lingers in the long finish and the fruit flavors begin to grow as the palate acclimates to a strong minerality.

WHY THIS WINE IS SPECIAL

The pride and joy of the Brancatelli estate, this bottling is denoted with Giuseppe's full name. Like the Sogno for Cabernet, this is a small selection of the best fruit from the certified organic estate. The terroir of the Mediterranean coastline expresses a dark, more earthy power, than the French or American Syrahs. Aged in small French barrels for 18 months.
