2015 Pulcino d'oro Super Tuscan Red Blend

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.
