2016 La Storia Cuvee 32

Tasting Notes

43% Sangiovese, 41% Montepulciano, 8% Malbec, 4% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Franc

Our 2016 Cuvee 32 is the 19th vintage of this blend for Trentadue Winery. In retrospect our “Super Tuscan” blend has been very successful and consistently our top selling wine in the Tasting Room. This vintage is unique because the blend has a large percentage of Montepulciano from our new 1.5 acre vineyard and significant amount of the new Brunello Clone Sangiovese. The 2016 vintage produced wines with dark red color, bright fruit and firm acidity and well-structured tannins destined to age well. The 2016 Cuvee 32 has intense cherry/cassis aromas contributed by the Sangiovese followed by deeper red fruit aromas of plums, blueberry and a hint of pomegranate. Typical for the blend is an enticing mixture of herbs and spices making the wine particularly enjoyable with Italian style food. With more air the wine shows more complex yet still in developing stage aromas and flavors of cocoa, cinnamon, leather and black licorice. The mouth feel is medium to full with relatively high, food friendly acidity and a long and fresh finish. Drink now through 2022.
