Floral with predominant notes of violet. Rounding out the nose are aromas of dry herbs and hints of orange peel, white pepper and currant. On the palate, fresh red berries, cassis and strawberry. This wine has plenty of texture and is rich mid-palate, but has a soft and creamy finish.
85% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc. With a dark ruby color, the Valadorna showcases aromas of dark Valrhona chocolate, roasted espresso beans, cedar, lead pencil shavings, and herbal floral notes that are balanced with a mineral and earth-driven character. On the palate the wine extends a dry and firm profile of juicy black plums with hints of spent coffee grinds opening up to a supple and savory mid palate which lingers. The fullness of the wine is defined by the elegance of the Valadorna Merlot vineyard and it unmistakably carries the mineral character of the Tuscan site.
A delicious blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot. Deep ruby core. Gorgeous ripe raspberry and currant with soft oak notes of vanilla. A touch of roast coffee adds to the dazzling range of aromas. Layers of clean, direct fruit show themselves varyingly with each sip as intensifying flavors of blackcurrant and brown spice.
Medium-dark ruby red with a red rim. Dried berry and cherry notes, a good dash of tangy seasoning from oak, and a very delicate herbal note. Medium-weight and dry, lean at first as the natural acid attacks the palate, then subsides into more red cherry flavors with just a hint of vanilla-laced oak.
