We toasted my grandfather with this wine the night after he died. It’s that kind of wine. Monumental. Memorable. Sublime. The ‘father’ and first of the Supertuscans in 1971. Distinctly Italian with a bite to its cherry-and-currant fruit alongside a polished, internationalist structure. Goes perfectly with life-changing events.
