2016 Tenuta di Ghizzano Nambrot Costa Toscane 20 Vendemmie BIO
A great red Super Tuscan! This Nambrot from the quality winery Tenuta di Ghizzano is the beautiful result of years of research & development by the winery. The Nambrot was first made in 1996 using Merlot grapes and has evolved over the years into a blend together with Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot . This balanced wine fully demonstrates the power, the warmth and the character that this beautiful territory can express. The wine was named after the founder of the Venerosi family, whose name was Nambrot and lived in the year 830.
The Supertuscan Nambrot is the Pomerol of Tuscany and is made from exactly the same grapes as a Pomerol.

Wood education for 18 months in 225 liter oak barrels (of which 10% new) and finally 8 months aging in the bottle. Only 8,000 bottles of this wine are produced per year.
