Aromas of ripe black cherries, sandalwood, cedar and strawberry compote. Texturally even and balanced bright acidity, juicy fruits and a joyful, lingering sense of the vineyards at Il Palagio. Perfect for combining with traditional Tuscan recipes.

About the Winery:
Il Palagio is the 350 hectare Tuscan estate owned by musician Sting and his wife Trudie Styler. Sting has assembled a dream team to work his estate, with Alan York giving viticultural advice (the entire estate is run biodynamically), Paolo Caciorgna overseeing the winemaking and terroir expert Pedro Parra helping keep the soils in order.
The estate was in disrepair when they purchased it in 1999, and the vineyards were replanted over the next couple of years. These three wines were just the second release following this replanting activity.
90 Points, James Suckling
"A fun and delicious red. Aromas of flowers and light spice with some dried fruits and green olives. Light body, firm tannins and a fresh finish. Easy and juicy. Nicely done for the vintage. Serve this slightly chilled. Made from organically grown grapes at the estate of singer-songwriter Sting."
