A ruby color with a complex bouquet of violets and cherries. A dry taste with nuances of plums and black pepper and a long finish.

Wine maker notes
Villa Puccini is created to embody the traditions and innovative spirit of Tuscany. The wine starts with ripe, coastal fruit. Only the finest Sangiovese and Merlot from family-owned coastal vineyards near Suvereto, Cecina and Bolgheri are used to make this Super-Tuscan. Maritime influences and special soil - consisting of clay, limestone and gravel - impart a notable softness to the fruit in hillside areas.
Villa Puccini is patiently aged and refined; both in large and small oak casks from Slovenia and from France for about 1 year. Three months of bottle aging takes place before this carefully made red wine is released. It is cold-bottled under a nitrogen blanket at the Villa Puccini winery in Santa Lucia in Tuscany.
It is a dry wine that has many of the characteristics of the lofty Tuscan reds. Still, it is delicious and approachable in its youth. Like all wines of character, it will continue to mature in the bottle for a few years; we recommend, however, that you enjoy it young.
Roasts, steaks, chops, game dishes, beef or veal stews. Rich cheeses. Meat dishes based on garlic and rosemary. Pasta with meat sauces.
More than a decade ago, HeyDay Corporation entered into a joint venture with Villa Puccini and Dr. Sabino Russo, a dynamic young enologist who works on an estate near Pisa, to produce premium Italian wines for sale in the USA. These fine wines of Villa Puccini are aged and bottled at state of the art wineries throughout Tuscany. Results have been extremely rewarding. From the vine to the bottle, great care is taken to assure quality, consistency, and authenticity.
