Castell'in Villa ‘Santacroce’ 2007

$105.00 per unit (750ml)

Toscana IGT

Equal parts Cabernet Sauvignon and Sangiovese, the ‘Santacroce’ is raised in 225-lt Bordeaux barrels for 18 months, a legacy of the Principessa’s connection to Giacomo Tachis. The 2007 reflects the powerful vintage with expressive notes of dark and red berries, dried herbs, tobacco and a distinct graphite note. The palate is typically structured and tense, with firm tannins promising a long life. R&R
