Product Description

Screwcap. Barco Reale is a blend of 70 per cent Sangiovese, 20 per cent Cabernet Sauvignon and 10 per cent Canaiolo Nero. Named after Carmignano's celebrated Medici property, of which this Estate was once a part, this wine was created in 1994 to offer an earlier drinking, lighter bodied style of Carmignano. It still comes entirely from hand-harvested, Estate vineyards, though from Capezzana's younger vines. The wine was matured in old 25 hectolitre, Allier oak casks for 12 months before bottling. There is no doubt that Tuscany can, from time to time, still deliver a lot of deliciousness and complexity and here is irrefutable proof. The texture is almost Gamay-like - open and silky across the palate with sweet cherry fruit complemented by subtle, notes of dried tea, provencal herbs and game - and then those fine, dusty, Tuscan tannins kick in to bring freshness and food friendliness. What we have here is an engaging, versatile wine - one that tastes of place rather than fruit and wood - from one of the great historic Estates of Tuscan viticulture. All at a price worth writing home about.
