Tenuta di Ghizzano | Tuscany, Italy

Wine & Spirits

Flavors of black plum surround this wine’s red cherry core, hinting at the influence of 30 percent cabernet sauvignon in this predominantly sangiovese blend. The wine rested in tonneaux for 16 months, picking up notes of vanilla and spice that swirl through the juicy fruit flavors. It gains volume with time in the glass as its raspy tannins begin to soften. Decant it for veal Bolognese.

Vinous

The 2013 Veneroso is one of the most compelling wines I have tasted from Tenuta di Ghizzano. Powerful yet weightless, the 2013 presents a beguiling interplay between the aromatic lift of Sangiovese and the darker flavors the Cabernet Sauvignon adds. Sweet tobacco, licorice, dried herbs, tobacco and menthol wrap around the striking, delineated finish. The 2013 is 70% Sangiovese and 30% Cabernet Sauvignon. The Sangiovese is so expressive here, I can only wonder what it might be like on its own.
