  • 94pts, Luca Maroni, 2020
  • Gold, Berliner Wine Trophy, 2020

Crafted by Sofia Barbanera on her family’s Tuscan estate, this top vintage Saracosa blends Sangiovese, Cabernet and Merlot – the classic Super Tuscan recipe. Part oak aged for extra complexity, it tastes like the best of Chianti and Bordeaux in one.

Saracosa is inspired by the ‘Super Tuscans’ – a style first developed by Antinori in the 1970s. These wines kick started the region’s renaissance and became some of the most exclusive and expensive in the world. Saracosa is from the Barbanera family estate, overlooked by the Saracosa hill near Montalcino. Half the vineyards are in the Vino Nobile di Montepulciano DOCG, and the remainder just beyond. In the 5-Star 2018 vintage Saracosa’s old vines delivered exceptional concentration. The fruit was then part-aged in French oak barriques to lend a toasty layer of complexity. Dense, dark cherry and chocolatey tones make this a serious choice for pasta with pork ragù or bistecca alla fiorentina (steak with cannellini beans in tomato sauce).
