Gorgeous, 95 point Tuscan Red: Il Sasso

Italy's on my mind again today -- I'm shopping for plane tickets for my September trip -- so when I learned this Tuscan gem is arriving in just ten days, I had to get writing.

Our favorite Italian wine critic and founder of Vinous Media, Antonio Galloni, lavished praise on the gorgeous 2015 Il Sasso, a sensational value from the hills northwest of Florence. A blend of 70% Sangiovese, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc, and 10% Merlot, previous vintages have wowed us and we expect the '15 to do the same. 


Piaggia Carmignano "Il Sasso" 2015
$32.35 in any 12 bottle or Build a Case* order ($35.95 regular) 
95 points Vinous: "Piaggia's 2015 Carmignano Il Sasso is rich, ample and voluptuous in what is a very representative expression of the year. Black cherry, plum, lavender, spice, tobacco and dried herbs develop in the glass, but the 2015 is all about fruit intensity and texture. There is not much subtlety here, but wow, is the 2015 gorgeous." - Antonio Galloni
 
Arriving May 25 but we predict it will be sold out before then!

We're looking forward to helping you with an order. Thanks for your support!
