Il Palagio 2014 Casino delle Vie IGT Toscana

From the Vineyards of famous musician, Sting!
This wine is named after a property on the estate and when translated it means “little house by the roads”. Colloquially, this can also mean “the muddling of the ways” suggesting philosophical musings on the paths we all take in life.

Like Sister Moon, this wine is also a Super Tuscan (IGT Toscana) from Sting's Tenuta Il Palagio estate, composed of Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and a small quantity of Merlot. It is an intense wine for savouring.

Tasting Note:

Aromas of mint, spice and blueberries turn to currants. Full body, with dense palate of almost jammy fruit, but then turns soft and fresh.

Varieties: 75% Sangiovese, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot and Cabernet Franc.

About the Winery:

Il Palagio is the 350 hectare Tuscan estate owned by musician Sting and his wife Trudie Styler. Sting has assembled a dream team to work his estate, with Alan York giving viticultural advice (the entire estate is run biodynamically), Paolo Caciorgna overseeing the winemaking and terroir expert Pedro Parra helping keep the soils in order.

The estate was in disrepair when they purchased it in 1999, and the vineyards were replanted over the next couple of years. These three wines were just the second release following this replanting activity.

90 Points - James Suckling, 'A fresh and stylish red with green leaves and spices with juicy fruit. Medium body, firm and silky tannins and a crisp finish. Touch of cream.' JamesSuckling.com November 2016 (2013 vintage)

Recommended by Jane MacQuitty in The Times Magazine, 'Sting's organic, sensual, sangiovese-based red, enhanced with cabernets and a dab of merlot, oozes bold, silky, violet-scented charm.' June 2017 (2014 vintage)

93 Points - James Suckling - "Aromas of mint, spice and blueberries turn to currants. Full body, with dense palate of almost jammy fruit, but then turns soft and fresh. From Sting and Trudie Styler. Made from biodynamic grapes. So drinkable now but better in 2014. " - 2010 vintage
