Passport Series #4 Super TUSCAN

The last of the four limited edition Passport series arrives in store on March Tuesday 5th.

This red Super Tuscan from Italy has built many friendships in Nelson since we took over Wine Kitz. Super Tuscan, a term made popular in the 1980’s, is used to describe wines made in Chianti that did not follow the strict DOCG rules using varietals non-indigenous to the region. A blend of Sangiovese, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, this full-bodied Super Tuscan exhibits aromatic notes of oak, vanilla, leather and spice while the palate punches with bold black cherry and raspberry flavours. Firm but not aggressive tannins and a long lingering finish explain its popularity among the true wine lovers. While the terroir has challenged soil conditions, this benefits the region resulting in lower yields and higher quality wines also loved by critics worldwide.

The pre-order quantities are reserved. We did order a few extra for those who missed the deadline. This is your chance.
