(From 2011 Vintage) The Bacio Divino remains an esoteric blend: 95% Cabernet (including some of the Beckstoffer heritage fruit) with a small amount of exceptional Sangiovese and a ‘whiff’ of Petit Verdot.
(From 2006 Vintage) The 2006 Bacio Divino Proprietary Red exhibits a deep ruby/purple color as well as notes of melted licorice, black currants, blueberries, and raspberries. This opulent, fleshy, fruity 2006 is hard to resist.
This distinctive blend of 62% Cabernet Sauvignon, 28% Sangiovese, and 10% Petite Sirah may be Napa's finest interpretation of a proprietary red wine from Italy's Tuscan coastline. A dense ruby/purple color accompanies sweet notes of black fruit, charcoal, licorice, new saddle leather, and dried herbs. This rich, multi-layered, medium to full-bodied red possesses a lush, hedonistic mouthfeel, complex aromatics, and a fabulous finish. This is the real deal! Enjoy it over the next 6-8 years.
