The term "Super Tuscan," coined by Robert Parker in the 1970's is a fairly recent style in the long and illustrious history of wines made in Tuscany. The term describes red blends that are produced from grapes not native to the region, for instance Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. The Casalforno Opera Rosso blends Sangiovese with Merlot to create a lush and intense palate, combined with the vivid acidity typical of Italian reds.
"The nose offers notes of wild berries, sweet spices and delicate hints of vanilla in a superb combination of spicy aromas. Casalforno is amazing for the elegance, full-body and smooth texture." Luca Maroni, 98 Points
