Casino Delle Vie 2012 Tenuta Il Palagio (Organic) 13.5% 75cl
Sign up for price alert
Elegant 'Super Tuscan' from the Tuscan estate of Sting and Trudie Styler. Like Sister Moon, this wine is also a Super Tuscan (IGT Toscana) from Stings' Tenuta Il Palagio estate, comprising of Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and a small quantity of Merlot. It is an intense wine for savouring. Casino delle Vie is named after a property on the estate. Literally it means 'little house by the roads', but a more colloquial interpretation might be 'the muddle of ways', inviting philosophical musings on the paths we take in life ... after a few glasses of wine of course!
90 Points - Wine Spectator (2009 vintage)
'13.5% alcohol. Aged in used oak. Subtle and warmly spiced with mellow cherry, plum and blackberry fruit. Some grip here with a mineral, spicy dimension, showing strongly savoury characters. Dense but not heavy, hinting at elegance. The red cherry and plum fruit, together with a drying finish, makes it almost Nebbiolo like.' 89 Points Jamie Goode, wineanorak.com June 2012 (2009 vintage)
