A Wine Library Wine of the Year Candidate that didn't quite make it.
Late last year, our wine team tasted a selection of wines from Italy that we were not very familiar with. There was a selection of wines from all over Tuscany, many of which had Sangiovese as the dominate varietal and others that were blends. There was one wine in particular we kept going back to. It was a blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon and 50% Sangiovese that was simply incredible the moment we opened it ... and continued to evolve over the next hour or so.
We worked out a deal to bring the wine in and offer it out at an incredible price with the initial thought that it would be one of our Wines of the Year for 2015. However, due to a few delays ... it didn't make it in time. Slow transit from Italy combined with the busy holiday season delayed the wine over a month.
Today however, we are thrilled to finally bring this incredible discovery to all of you ... and who knows ... 10 months from now we might be looking back at this as one of our picks for our Wine of the Year for 2016!!
The ultimate blend. 50% Cab Sauv. 50% Sangiovese.
We know there are a ton of you on this list that buy both Cabernet Sauvignon and Sangiovese from us. Many of you look towards these great varietals as a source of outstanding everyday wines. Wines that you can open on a Tuesday or Thursday night. Wines that are available in all price points. However the ultimate goal can sometimes be finding the particular producers in the $19.99-$29.99 price point who are making wine that drink like they should be 2 or 3 times the price.
This wine is a direct example of that fact.
Not only is it flat-out delicious and screaming to be enjoyed now or over the next several years, it delivers the level of complexity and overall structure that you would expect from wines that cost much more. What's more, the 60+ second finish on this wine is what will have you really talking!

"Bollina presents a line of wines of excellent analytical and sensory value ... reaching its height with the Aros Rosso Corte Medicea in 2014, a real absolute champion of supple flavor and persuasive taste with wonderfully soft tannins wrapped in the luscious softness of the grape."
Bottom line - this is an incredible blend that is ready to drink now!!
