Every year our proprietary red Bordeaux blend is a little bit different, but the flavor profile remains consistent, as the two vintners (Gary and Ellen) carefully mix and blend to just the perfect meritage. FORTIVO blend is full of robust Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, and our estate grown Cabernet Franc and Malbec. The large percentage of Cabernet Franc delivers mouthwatering silky textures, while the other Bordeaux varietals deliver tannins and zest. Fortivo means "Strong" in Italian, and this all-occasion red drinking wine is especially aromatic due to the Cabernet Franc and Malbec. Opening aromas of plums and blackberries 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!) we produced an extra amount of Fortivo in response to its popularity, a great example of how our Friends of Fortunati subscribers influence our production!

This is outstanding. The tannins are not too strong and the finish is well put together, which is a much appreciated characteristic of this Bordeaux blend. Even as the wine gets slightly warmer the longer it is in the glass it does not loose it's integrity of having a strong finish yet smooth balance on the palate. Thank you Fortunati.
