ExcelsuS, Latin for “eminent,” is produced only in excellent vintages. This Bordeaux blend shines with Tuscan character.

Made up of 60% Merlot and 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, both varietals are vinified separately in French oak barriques. They are then blended and aged as a cuvée for an additional 8 to 10 months. Bottle-aging follows for at least 6 months.

Notes of Scent & Flavor

  • Aroma

    Complex, with aromas of cassis, ripe fruit, licorice and tobacco.
  • Body

    This wine is very powerful, full-bodied and enveloping. Ideal for long aging.

“Rich bouquet, with hints of plum and black currant. Well-structured with remarkable fruit concentration and supple tannins.”


Origins

Perched high in the hills of Tuscany, we find Montalcino. At just over 60,000 acres of hillsides and valleys, Montalcino is richly diverse in landscape, elevations, and soil types. While the region enjoys numerous microclimates, an overall temperate climate allows for grapes to ripen fully. yet only a portion of Montalcino is dedicated to vine, with the rest remaining distinctively lush with forest and olive groves. It’s a region that prides itself on quality, exemplifying the concept of terroir; Montalcino truly is “a territory made for wine.*”
