Wine Description:

Cavaliere has reached new heights with the release of its debut 1996 vintage. Created from sangiovese and merlot grapes, it is both rich and fresh. Cavaliere – meaning “fly above the clouds” – is named after the remote region high in the Tuscany foothills Granducale, at the northwestern edge of Florence province, where the vines are grown. "Cavaliere" is an aristocrat Luxury Wine with elegant and personal flavor. The fruit comes forth in ripe, chewy and slightly sweet waves of intensity with blackberry preserves and cherry compote. The wine shows great density and structure. The tannins are thick and broad in formation. The prime quality and structure of this Fine Wine demand excellent first courses and risottos or for grilled meats and vegetables.


Wine Cellar:

Tenuta Torciano Winery is situated in the heart of Tuscany, 35 minutes from Florence and 20 minutes from Siena, surrounded by beautiful rolling hills and a succession of unique greenery that features towering cypress trees, long stretches of beautiful vineyards, olive groves, forests of oaks and lovely villages.

When you visit Tenuta Torciano Winery, you will totally immerse yourself in Italian culture, together with a Tuscan family consisting of 13 generations of wine producers. Here you will experience warm hospitality and additional Tuscan traditions handed down from father to son.


Area of Production:

Located in central Italy along the Tyrrhenian coast, Tuscany is home to some of the world's most notable wine regions. Toscana IGT is the most famous – and the most commonly used – of Italy's Indicazione Geografica Tipica (IGT) titles. The geographical region it indicates is, in short, Tuscany.

Toscana IGT wines can be made in any village in any of Tuscany's 10 provinces.


Grapes:

Merlot – Sangiovese wines are made from two grape varieties extensively grown and widely appreciated in Italy. Sangiovese is internationally renowned for its well-balanced structure and savory flavors.

Sangiovese almost always plays the dominant role in the blend, with Merlot used to soften the wine's texture and make it more approachable in its youth. Merlot also adds fruitiness and juiciness to the blend, complementing Sangiovese's more savory and herbaceous qualities.
