2014 La Contessa Francesca

2014 La Contessa Francesca

The connection was the ring’s history. It was originally owned by an Italian countess from Panzano in the 19th century.

We were both feeling deeply romantic and happy that evening. The wine did the trick. She said yes. I guess the countess’s ring didn’t hurt either...

“La Contessa” is my tribute to that wine and to that memory. This is our estate Syrah and it has a beautiful nose, perfect weight, and delightful intensity. Cin Cin!

Stunning cherry and violet notes on the nose give way to a voluptuous, polished finish.
