    Coastal Tuscany has been the center of the Super Tuscan revolution for decades; the warmer, more consistent climate allows the late ripening Cabernet Sauvignon a chance for complete physiological maturity. The initial burst of Super Tuscan activity was near Bolgheri but since that time the more southerly coast near Grosseto, about an hour drive south of Bolgheri, has become a hotbed of growth. One of these producers the Mazzei family, owners of Castello di Fonterutoli in Chianti Classico, bought land in the early 1990’s in the hills just a bit south of Grosseto. The family looked for years for the right location to buy and found it, the property lies nestled in the gentle hills less than 10 miles from the Tyrrhenian Sea. The Tenuta Belguardo is a blend of 90% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Cabernet Franc aged for 18 months in French barrique. The wine’s nose is classic cabernet, pencil shavings, cassis with bits of cigar box but behind it some dense fruit. On the palate the wine has the breadth one would expect in Cabernet but its Tuscan heritage adds length to balance, more fruit shows on the palate than in the nose and it is deeper and darker. The finish is fine, elegant balance with a bit of lift in the finish. Super wine, capable of aging for 20 years.
    Drink from 2017 to 2033
