Every year our proprietary red Bordeaux blend is a little bit different, but the flavor profile remains consistent. Begining with our 2014 release, we're delighted to announce our FORTIVO blend is now almost entirely estate grown fruit, primarily Cabernet Franc and our Malbec, leaving only the Merlot to be sourced. The large percentage of Cabernet Franc delivers mouthwatering silky textures, while the two other Bordeaux varietals deliver tannins and zest. Fortivo means "Strong" in Italian, and this all-occasion red drinking wine is expecially aromatic, with Cabernet Franc (81%), fruity Merlot (14%), and intense Malbec (5%). With opening aromas of plums and blackberries, it primes the palate for a full, lengthy, flavorful finish. Enjoy now by decanting or cellar for another 4-8 years. As a testament to this wines' popularity, (and the fact that we sell out of the previous vintage too soon every year!) this is our largest production to date of any wine, with 500 cases produced!
