2017 Vintage | Cab Sauv, Merlot, Cab Franc and Malbec
French President Charles De Gaulle publicly praised this wine as an excellent Bordeaux, and was then told it was Italian. It was then re-named Capo di Stato (Head of State), a wine which was created by Gasparini for offical events hosted in Venice by City Council.
Made from a blend of old clones of Cab Sauv, Merlot, Cab Franc and Malbec, this wine is counted as one of Italy's finest. 50 year old vines from a little historic appellation 50km north of Venice, at 110m above sea level that has always crafted Bordeaux blends.
Deep blackberry and black currant fruit with hazelnut shadings & dried rose petals. Supple tannins, broad palate, delightful finish.
