Vitanza Quadrimendo

Another beautiful child of winemaker, Rosalba Vitanza.  Quadrimendo is a Tuscan blend of Sangiovese Grosso (same clone of Sangiovese found in Brunello) and Merlot.  The nose brings you hints of rose petal and leather.  The palate has balanced acidity and an array of dark fruits.  It is aged for 18 months in second use French barriques and rests for about a year in the bottle before release.  Excellent with robust meats, pastas, and cheeses.
