Sourced from a gorgeous coastal estate built in the early 1800s on the hills overlooking the Tyrrhenian Sea, Lot 717 is a dynamite 80/20 red blend of Sangiovese and Syrah, produced from organic vineyards planted in alluvial soils with plenty of sun and sea breeze exposure. Aged for 12 months in oak barrels, this 2015 vintage beauty still drinks young, and has many years ahead of it to develop even more complexity. Simply a tremendous bottle any way you slice it.
At $20/bottle, it’s a third of what you’d expect to pay for a wine like this elsewhere. Italophiles - you want this.
Didn’t know what to expect with this one, but it was amazing after letting it open up! So sad it’s out of stock!
Finally opened a bottle of this Super Tuscan. I wouldn't say Super but very good indeed. A nice blend with medium body. It went very well with some home made lasagna. Very good value.
Smooth , But Light Bodied and a Little Sweet
It was good with an Italian pork dish, but I was surprised that it was fairly light-bodied and a little sweet. Think I'd rather have a traditional Chianti Classico.
From the moment I opened the bottle, I was greeted with a rich aroma and a deep ruby color in the glass. There was great complexity that got even better with carnitas. I can to purchase more and it's out! I hate when that happens.
Super Super Tuscan
Dark fruits and cola on the nose. Same on the pallet with tobacco, mild acidity and fine grained tannins that make for a medium long finish. Nothing to not like here.
Wow... such an amazing find! Dry, yet fruit forward, medium bodied... loved it! Burst of flavor with the first sip.
Incredible wine for the price, CH please bring this back!
Bring on the garlic bread!
This was a pleasant surprise! It reminded me of a Chianti! Made me crave some pasta, fresh artisan bread and dipping oil and herbs. It had a nice body and just dry enough. Definitely will reorder to go with the summer pizzas on the grill and a wonderful pasta dish on a fall Sunday afternoon.
A real value
This Tuscany blend is ful of fruit flavors including rustic tastes of black cherries. I really need to drink more wines that have a heavy dose of Sangiovese grapes. We had this wine on two different evenings. One with bacon cheese burgers and another with baked pasta and sausage. It was delicious in both cases!
Great value albeit not the most complex.
Enjoyed this wine a lot and it was great value for the price. I found myself wanting to will this wine into having a bit more complexity to go along with the generally more balanced style of the wine, but I was very happy with the delivery for the price.
