Take a Trip to Tuscany for just $20!


Who needs the exorbitant cost of travel and its jetlag troubles, when you can transport yourself to Italy for just $19.99 with this exceptional Riserva Chianti from a record-breaking vintage!


The Riserva classification in general terms, is a guarantee of superior quality. Riper grapes from lower yielding vines, meticulously crafted into top quality wines, and matured for longer in barrel. This particular wine has had six months in large oak barrels to round out tannin, build complexity and create a velvety mouthfeel. It was then given a further 18 months in stainless steel tank to preserve its beautiful fruit and delicate perfume. Add to that a fantastic vintage like 2016, which many critics refer to as the vintage of the century!

Renowned Italian Wine Critic Luca Maroni, scored this absurdly priced Italian stallion a breath-taking 96 points out of 100. That's quite a checklist of consumer confidence for very little investment!


An etheral and delicate perfume of violet, luscious ripe red berries and balsamic characters emerge from the glass. On the palate it is rich and balanced with red berry, black liquorice and a beautiful forest floor, savoury earth character that is finished off with spice and toasty vanilla elements. Well crafted tannins titillate the mouth cheeks and linger in a long mineral finish, that while delicious now, will only improve with age through to 2026.

Perfect for roasted red meats, game and mature hard cheeses.



Delight your senses and your budget, with the beautiful Duca di Saragnano Riserva for an incredible price of just $19.99 a bottle. Grab a case and toast your good fortune while stocks last!

Description

Duca di Saragnano Riserva 2016 is a bargain not to be missed. The grapes that go into Riserva must be riper and typically cropped at lower production levels resulting in rich, full-bodied and concentrated wines. Combine this with the fabulous 2016 vintage, hailed as the vintage of the century and that it scored 96 points by Luca Maroni and the fact it is priced, just a fraction over $20, and you have yourself the steal of the century. Don’t delay, I certainly wont and will be adding a case to my cellar.

Smells

an ethereal and delicate bouquet of violets, red currants, wild red berries with notes of red earth and balsamic nuances.

Tastes

the palate is rich, and balanced with delicious flavours of red berry fruits, black liquorice, forest floor and a striking earthy vein with spice and toasty vanilla notes on the finish. The tannins are velvety that simply delight and linger, titillating the cheeks with a minerally, long finish. Great drinking now through 2026 and the ideal accompaniment to roasted red meats, game, and mature cheeses.
