2017 Due Santi Rosso
Our Cabernet Sauvignon for this vintage was incredibly intense with deep and dark berries coming through on the nose and the palate. The Merlot, while much riper in flavor than ever, still possesses the hint of forest and provides the acidic backbone to balance the richness of the Cabernet. This wine truly qualifies for the "velvet hammer" description. It is also a touch higher in alcohol than prior Due Santi Rossos and is much more obviously opulent and drinkable on release.
