Tasting Notes

This is a rare, beautiful wine. We were fortunate to bring over just a few cases from Cupano's cellar this Autumn. If you like fully mature, smooth, Tuscan reds, this has got it all. Drinking perfectly now. No need to stash away. 

More Info

One of the things that demonstrates the great attention to detail shown by Cupano is that owner & winemaker, Lionel Cousin, walks through his vineyard every day removing individual berries with a pair of nail scissors. It is winemaking on a miniaturist scale. Compare that to the infamous story about one of Australia's huge wineries, where the double-width mechanical harvesters went through the vineyards with such indiscriminate disregard that when they went to press the grapes, one of the workers found a bicycle in the crusher. At Cupano, perched on a beautiful ridge near Camigliano that slopes down to the Ombrone river, they harvest everything by hand and use a horse and plough to tend the soil. If you were a grape, this would be where you went on your holidays.
