Basile Cartacanta Toscana 2011 750ML        
Sku: 66995

Free Mix & Match Case Shipping!

Calling all fans of Italian reds, The Wine Buyer has found another amazing value from brothers Domenico and Giovan Basile and one of Tuscany's most illustrious enologists, Roberto Cipresso of La Fiorita. The Cartacanta 2011 is mostly Sangiovese (think Chianti) with a small dollop of Merlot which conveys earthy black cherry-like notes and the lovely floral characteristic of Tuscany.

This area of Tuscany is slightly warmer than Chianti, resulting is more voluptuous wines. Their Cartacanta is notably more fruit-forward than your average Italian red, while retaining that distinct Old World complexity. Fans of our last Basile offer will be immediately impressed, at an even lower price point!

"Ruby red in color, this medium bodied wine is fullof cherry, blackberry and black pepper flavors. Reminiscent of a spicy Rhone wine with the pepper notes on the palate." The Wine Buyer, 90 Points

Wine maker notes
Basile is a certified organic winery producing outstanding wines in the Montecucco & Maremma regions of Tuscany. Neapolitan-born brothers Domenico and Giovan Battista Basile have been biodynamic for decades, using integrated organic farming techniques now adopted by many of the world's best wine estates (Domaine de la Romanee Conti and Chateau Pontet-Canet). Today the brothers continue to make efforts and improvements in their six hectare vineyard to follow organic viticulture practices and have built a winery facility with no carbon footprint on the environment.
