Candialle Ciclope Rosso Toscano 2015

$ 22.50

A rare red blend from husband and wife, organic farmers, and winemaking team Jarkko and Josephin Peranen. This earthy and elegant wine is primarily Merlot and Sangiovese with a bit of Syrah and Petit Verdot. While this may sound like a rich and potentially tannic combination, in their hands, with their hand-tended, high-altitude vines, it is a lithe, food-appropriate, deliciously drinkable wine. True to all of their wines, the Ciclope has been held until it shows its absolute best. Named after their dog, who lost an eye in an unfortunate tussle with a Tuscan porcupine, it is a unique bottling demonstrating the finesse Jarkko and Josephin are known for.
