Il Palagio 2012 Sister Moon IGT Toscana

From the Vineyards of famous musician, Sting!

Sister Moon has been described as 'one of Italy's finest' - Wine Spectator, OperaWine

The wine is "silky and smooth, with mature tannins and hints of chocolate, liquorice and blackberries," Stevie Kim, the managing director of OperaWine

A blend of Sangiovese, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes, Sister Moon has an alcohol content of 14.9 per cent and was matured for two years in French oak barrels.

Tasting Note:

Aromas of black pepper and black licorice with blackberries. Full body, with soft and round tannins and a polished tannic finish. It fills your mouth and then caresses your taste buds.

Blend: 45% Sangiovese, 45 % Merlot, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon

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.

96 Points - James Suckling - "This is so refined and polished with dusty tannins and shaved-chocolate and dried berry character. Full-bodied but fresh and lively. Long, long finish. Trudie and Sting's best wine ever. A blend of cabernet sauvignon, merlot and sangiovese. Made from biodynamically grown grapes. Very drinkable now but better in 2017."
