Elegant and silky for the vintage with blueberry and black pepper aromas and flavors. Medium body, firm tannins and a pretty finish. Delicious blend of sangiovese and cabernet sauvignon. Drink or hold.

Renieri
Regina di Renieri

TOSCANA IGT

2013

The palate here shows dark fruits with hot dusty stones and hints of dried meat. Not an obvious expression of syrah. Full with a wonderful juicy intensity that follows through to the finish. Drink now. Why wait?

This shows a dusty texture with chocolate powder and dried cherry aromas. Medium to full body, silky tannins and a fresh finish. Shows tension and beauty. Beautiful merlot. One of the best yet from here. Drink or hold.

Renieri
Re di Renieri

TOSCANA IGT

2013

A Bordeaux blend with aromas of plums, dark currants with hits of licorice and leather. The palate is full and juicy with polished tannins and a persistent walnut-like finish. A blend of merlot, cabernet sauvignon, cabernet franc and petit verdot. Better in a year or two but already delicious.

This is rich and very silky with a pretty density and ripeness. Lots of blueberry and cherry character. Medium to full body, fine tannins and a flavorful finish. Hints of new wood. Hard to resist. Petit verdot. Drink or hold.
