Tzingana is an intensely fruity, elegantly tannic, well-balanced wine. It is a blend (Bordeaux style) consisting of Merlot (45%), Cabernet Sauvignon (20%), Cabernet Franc (20%), and Petit Verdot (15%). The unique characteristic of this wine is due to the simultaneous vinification of the four varietals, which allows for greater complexity and integration.
This full-bodied wine is packed with fruit that is richly complex and smooth. Its tannins, acidity and cherry soul are unmistakably Tuscan with the added character of fresh cassis, blackberries and minerality characteristic of Bordeaux. This wine can be laid down to be enjoyed in the years to come, but can also be enjoyed upon release.
