The 1997 vintage is one of the most sought after in recent memory for the 'Super Tuscan' category. This winery sits just to the west of the middle of Chianti Classico and has found a niche that certainly challenges their Chianti neighbors. 'Saxa Calida' is Latin for HOT ROCKS and this vineyard is covered with rocks and when the blazing Tuscan sun warms those rocks during the day they hold the heat and radiate it back once the sun goes down. This is a powerful yet supple blend of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon with a touch of new French oak. Extraordinary ripe choclatey fruit with balance and length, very limited.
