1997 Fattoria Paradiso "Saxa Calida" Toscana

SKU #231428

The 1997 vintage is one of the most sought after in recent memory for the 'Super Tuscan' category. This winery sits just to the west of the middle of Chianti Classico and has found a niche that certainly challenges their Chianti neighbors. 'Saxa Calida' is Latin for HOT ROCKS and this vineyard is covered with rocks and when the blazing Tuscan sun warms those rocks during the day they hold the heat and radiate it back once the sun goes down. This is a powerful yet supple blend of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon with a touch of new French oak. Extraordinary ripe choclatey fruit with balance and length, very limited.

Additional Information:



- Once named Enotria for its abundant vineyards, Italy (thanks to the ancient Greeks and Romans) has had an enormous impact on the wine world. From the shores of Italy, the Romans brought grapes and their winemaking techniques to North Africa, Spain and Portugal, Germany, France, the Danube Valley, the Middle East and even England. Modern Italy, which didn't actually exist as a country until the 1870s, once produced mainly simple, everyday wine. It wasn't until the 1970s that Italy began the change toward quality. The 1980s showed incredible efforts and a lot of experimentation. The 1990s marked the real jump in consistent quality, including excellence in many Region that had been indistinct for ages. The entire Italian peninsula is seeing a winemaking revolution and is now one of the most exciting wine Region in the world.
