Castell'In Villa Santacroce 2003

Castell'In Villa Santacroce 750ml 2003     
Sku: 1544119*

The Santacroce is Castell’in Villa’s flagship wine made from 50% Cabernet Sauvignon grapes and 50% Sangiovese grapes. The wine is then stored for 18 months in barriques, traditional Bordeaux oak barrels of 225 litres capacity. The Santacroce is an example of what is called a Super-Tuscan wine. It is the result of the mix of the best methods and ingredients in local wine making and the creativity of the wine maker. Since the wine making method does not comply with the local rules for the D.O.C.G., the wine is only allowed to be classified as IGT Toscana. The Castell’in Villa Santacroce is a thorough complex wine combining both the old and new styles of contemporary wine making

Rating
 Wine Advocate 92 points (Jun 2012)
The 2003 Santacroce is another beautiful wine from a harvest that was extremely challenging because of the torrid heat. Dark red cherries, tobacco, licorice and incense are some of the notes that flow from this rich, textured wine. Firm yet polished tannins give the 2003 much of its energy and sense of vibrancy. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2020.
