Made for the first time in 1968, Vigorello was the first of a new generation of Tuscan wines that subsequently became the famous Supertuscans. Its blend is predominantly Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Pugnitello, an ancient native grape revived by San Felice, with a small addition of Petit Verdot. It matures some 20 months in French oak barriques and then 8-10 months in the bottle.
TASTING NOTES & PAIRINGS
Dense, garnet-flecked ruby. Releases a rich medley of redcurrant, sweet spice, and pungent underbrush. Warm and rich in the mouth, with expressive tannins and smooth hints of vanilla. Grills and roasts, particularly of game birds and lamb, and aged cheeses.
