This vibrant and robust Super Tuscan is inspired by the legend of an illustrious Etruscan king whose tomb was guarded by 5,000 golden chicks and a hen. Black-red fruit flavors of cherry and plum are elevated by oak and vanilla nuances in this voluptuous wine, culminating in a deliciously long finish. Not shy, this red requires a rich pairing like osso buco — or some other meal that’s fit for a king.
