Our 2019 A56 Red Blend opens the door to a beautiful journey. This first vintage explodes with the aroma of fresh herbs and berries, and delivers on the palette with beguiling hints of Autumn spice. As the vineyards age and we further unravel their secrets, we anticipate each year to lead us even further. And yet, as this exceptional Red Mountain red blend is delicious now, you might as well take the first step, savoring a glass with a crust of fresh bread and a slice of soppressata or pasta e fagioli to start, or perhaps with a traditional risotto Milanese, or ossobuco. Linger over your last sips with a silky tiramisu. Now that’s a journey worth waiting for. Salute!
40% Merlot, 36% Cabernet Sauvignon, 23% Cabernet Franc, 1% Petit Verdot. Fermented on skins for 3 to 5 weeks in stainless steel, Malo lactic fermentation in barrel. Aged 22 months in 50% new French Oak.
Explosive aromas, leading with fresh blackberries and dried, savory herbs. Hints of anise, clove and crushed stone. Dense and chewy on the palate, with an expansive entry that crescendos through the long finish of lingering, fine grain tannins.
