Available now, this is a limited library release of La Spinetta's Super Tuscan, Sezzana Riserva. With over a decade of bottle age, no need to cellar this beauty - although you could.
The Sezzana Vineyard is located in the heart of Spinetta's Tuscan estate. There, the 50 year old vines are grown on sandy, volcanic soil giving this wine amazing aromatics and depth.
These bottles were hand selected from the stellar 2004 vintage and gently tucked away for the last 10 years. Sezzana is a perfectly balanced Super Tuscan that rivals some of the best from Italy.
While Tignanello may very well be one of the most recognized Super Tuscans and a beauty for sure, we highly recommend you give your Tig a little vacation. Keep it as well as your Sassicaia and Ornellaia on their sides a bit longer and instead enjoy Sezzana, this limited release from one of Italy's finest winemakers.
Here's what to expect when you crack open this delicious Tuscan red: Ripe plum, dark red cherry, pine, forest floor, spice, menthol, roasted coffee, cocoa, hints of vanilla and toasty oak. A rich texture delivers classic dark cherry fruit and balanced acidity. Enjoy it now, however, you can easily cellar for another 10 years.
Please note, this is the Riserva Sezzana and not Spinetta's regular bottling of Sezzana. Because of the limited amount of the wine, there will be a 12 bottle maximum per customer. Enjoy!
