One of their best efforts ever (and that says something, given how many fine wines have been produced under the Bacio Divino moniker), the 2013 Bacio Divino, which is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (sourced from four different vineyards) and Sangiovese (from the Benessere Vineyard in St. Helena), is a beautifully complex wine with big, sexy notes of new saddle leather, blackberry and blackcurrant fruit, silky tannins, a full-bodied, voluptuous texture and lots of personality and glycerin-filled fruit. This is a beauty to drink over the next 7-8 years.
Bright and brilliant dark fruit with black currant, blueberry and dark chocolate character, yet tight and focused. Full body, firm tannins and a fresh finish. Better in 2018.
Rich black current and cherry aromas exude from this glass, the fruit on the palate is framed nicely by the sweet cigar box spice of the oak. This is a full-bodied wine with an exceptionally long, yet elegant, finish. The fine silky tannins of the valley floor are very evident. A firm acidity leads us to believe that this wine will age well for the next 10-15 years.
