Silver I Tre Figli Santa Barbara County
non-vintage I Tre Figli - (The Three Sons) a proprietary blend
50% 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon Casa Blanca Vineyard
45% 2008 Sangiovese Tepusquet Vineyard
5% 2008 Cabernet Franc Tierra Alta Vineyard
This is the second I Tre Figli to be bottled, a barrel select reserve styled blend. The I Tre Figli demonstrates how through blending, a silky smooth complex wine emerges with a personality unique to itself.
Both the Cabernet Sauvignon and the Sangiovese vines are over 40 years old.
The Cabernet Sauvignon forms the structure and the Sangiovese supple plum fruit. Cabernet Franc adds spice and high floral notes as well as focusing the midpalate. An intriguing layered, powerful ball of black plums, mixed berries, spice and wood.
The combination of an older vintage Cabernet Sauvignon blended with younger Sangiovese and Cabernet Franc, make this wine very approachable and drinkable now. It will also age well over the next 5-8 years.
Decant 15-20 minutes.
Please serve at 58°-65°F (20 minutes in the refrigerator before drinking).
