2010 Centellinare Santa Barbara County

Sold Out

Tasting Notes:

Centellinare (which means “to sip and savor” in Italian) is our New World riff on the brilliantly complex Super Tuscan wines of Italy.

Our blend is made of Cabernet Sauvignon, Sangiovese and a smidge of Tempranillo - which together create a wine with great structure and depth. A nose of black stone fruits leads to flavors of plum and black cherry with hints of dark chocolate, cola, leather, and subtle earthy notes. All this is followed by Centellinare’s rich and lingering black cherry finish that invites you back for another taste.

The high percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon in this blend makes this wine a perfect match for meals with grilled meats like hanger steak with chimichurri, or flat iron steak with pistachio pesto butter.

Varietal Characteristics

Cabernet Sauvignon, a noble grape and California’s king…This grape is full on flavor, with heavy tannins and lush, dark tones of cedar, forest floor, and dark fruit flavors of blackberry and cassis.

Sangiovese is a medium to full bodied red that has flavors of herbs, spice, dark cherry, and floral tones.

Vineyard Source
