2013 Tenuta Casadei Sogno Mediterraneo, $24.00

This unique Super Tuscan blend of 60 percent Syrah, 20 per-cent Grenache and 20 percent Mourvedre is the result of the meeting of two winemakers, one Italian (Stefano Casadei), one American (Fred Cline). GSM blends are rare in Tuscany (and for all of Italy). Rich and mouth-filling, it is powerful, yet elegant at the same time. Dark fruits intermingle with earth,
followed by a nice bright finish. “Tenuta Casadei is one of a growing number of estates located in Suvereto, southern Tuscany. Once considered Italy’s “wild west” with equestrian farms and horse wranglers, the area is steadily shaping a distinct wine identity. The wines from Casadei show pristine focus and bright intensity that make them worth seeking out." – Monica Larner, Wine Advocate.
