Wine Description

(1996 Vintage) Claus has now released the 1996 vintage of Bacio, which presents a new twist. The proportions of Sangiovese and Petit Sirah have been reduced slightly, and 8% Merlot has been added. As in previous vintages, the improbable mix of grapes magically works, with the same kind of alchemy that marks such eccentrically constituted wines as Australia's Grange, Spain's Vega Sicilia and Italy's Solaia. It is a superbly stylish wine of remarkable deep color and serious complexity; it also boasts stunning richness and beautifully round tannins. While the Cabernet has the upper hand, read more...the other varietals make their presence known. (hide)
