Wine Club Rosso Superiore

Overview

The 2017 release of Rosso is a blend of 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 26% Sangiovese, and 17% Merlot. The grapes were sourced primarily from the
Newsom and Lilli of the Vine vineyards in the Texas High Plains AVA. The grape lots were fermented and aged using traditional Italian methods such as extended maceration and undisturbed maturation “sur lie” in old 500-L oak puncheons.
Crafting a wine in this style yields layers of complex aromatics such as dried herbs, ripe black fig, forest floor, and black pepper. With good acidity and ripe tannins, this wine begs for marbled cuts of meat either grilled or braised, and ripe flavored cheeses.
If properly stored, this wine will continue to complex in the bottle for well over 10 years. Serve at a cool room temperature of 64°F.
