Valle del Sogno

Toscana IGT

80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Cabernet Franc

Sourced from a single plot of the best organic, estate fruit comes "The Valley of the Dream" - Valle del Sogno. Just a few thousand bottles are made, and the hand-sorted fruit selection is noticeable with a refined and long finish. The aroma is characterized by brooding dark red fruits and a refined earthy, herbal note with subtle hints of balsamic and vanilla. The palate is firm but not aggressive and the finish is lengthy and lingering.

POINTS OF INTEREST

This is the big brother of the "Valle delle Stelle" with a similar blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. With the help of famous winemaker Graziana Grassini, this wine is a standout for the area known as the Val di Cornia. With 6 hectares of Cabernet planted, this is the best fruit from a single hectare plot with the best exposure and microclimate. Aged 18 months in new and used French Allier barrels.

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.

POINTS OF INTEREST

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.

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.

POINTS OF INTEREST

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.
