Made by vigneron, Lionel Cousin, Vino Rosso Cupano is a unique multi-vintage blend of Brunello di Montalcino from barrels that were not ready when they first bottled the 2015 and 2016, with the addition of some 2018 to add freshness and make the bottling a bit larger. This is still a minute release of just 150 cases and the third release of Vino Rosso, comprised of vintages 2015, 2016 and 2018. For each release, their friend, Gerard Fromanger, paints a new label. Cupano’s style is powerful, but sensual. These are unforgettable wines that pluck the heart strings and leave the drinker with a sense of having tasted something profound.
