Red Wine /// Cab. Sauv. & Pugnitello // Tuscany / Italy
The 2015 Ridolfo is a new Cabernet Sauvignon/Pugnitello blend from Marco Ricasoli bottled only in magnum. Vibrant and finely sculpted, the 2015 impresses right out of the gate. A whole range of savory aromatics, lavender, spice, licorice and mocha open with time in the glass. Sweet rose petal and cinnamon appear later, adding brightness and lift. Cabernet Sauvignon and Pugnitello are not obvious varieties to blend, as they are, on paper, more similar than complementary. Even so, the combination works so well. I can't wait to see how this ages. The 2015 is a total knock-out! 98+ POINTS, VINOUS

The first time this wine has ever been made, it is a nod to the past but also a new interpretation of Chianti Classico. 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 50% Pugnitello. This is a collectors item and could become a serious part of wine history. Only in Magnum, numbered in wooden box, 1659 made. STSWine
