The Old Country

This is a 6-pack. This case contains 2 bottles of each wine:

Name: Marqués de Vargas 2015 Rioja Reserva
Region: RIOJA
Country: SPAIN

The handpicked grapes used for our Marqués de Vargas Reserva come from our 50 hectare vineyard “Hacienda Pradolagar”. Herbicides and pesticides are not used in our vineyards, occasionally only organic fertilizers are employed. The wine is made traditionally according to the old-world methods side by side with state-of-the-art technology. The wine is bottled without any fining or filtering resulting in an unprocessed and fully natural wine.

This wine is ruby in color. There is a freshness to it but the nose is rich and concentrated. It is silky on the palate with notes of blackberries, spice, dark chocolate and some balsamic from American/French/Russian barrels.

Name: Il Poggione 2018 Rosso di Montalcino
Country: ITALY

Younger, more accessible version of the Brunello, but already with an excellent structure and a great personality, Rosso di Montalcino is a very important wine for Tenuta Il Poggione.

Produced entirely from Sangiovese grapes, sourced in the estate's younger vineyards, Rosso di Montalcino is aged in large casks and barriques before a period of bottle aging. The wood aging, although not obligatory for the production of Rosso di Montalcino, tones down the tannins typical of a young Sangiovese and gives this red wine a complexity of aroma and structure that make it a great "Young Brunello".

Intense ruby red colour. Fruity bouquet with red berry notes. Very well structured, yet soft, long-lasting flavour with smooth, velvety tannins.

Name: Château Capet Guillier 2018 Château Tour de Capet
Country: FRANCE

Vinified within Château Capet Guillier, Château Tour de Capet enjoys its own unique terroir, lending the wine identity and character. The sandy-silt soil produces wines of great finesse, which draw character from the well-balanced structure and round-bodied nature of Merlot. Wine is vinified in concrete vats then aged in French oak barrels: 1/3 in new barrels, 1/3 in one-wine barrels, 1/3 in two-wine barrels for 12 months.

Purple in colour, the nose reveals aromas of crisp black fruit (blackcurrant, blackberry, blueberry) and spice (cinnamon, vanilla, cloves). The palate is supple and silky, with black fruit and spices, medium acidity and fine, silky tannins. The finish is pleasant.
