Eclipse Bravado Super Tuscan With Grape Skins 18L Wine Kit
The Region: Tuscany, the birthplace of the Italian Renaissance, is home to some of
the most recognizable art and architecture including Michelangelo’s
“David” and the Leaning Tower of Pisa. Vineyards grow on sloping
hillsides to provide good sun exposure and drainage, helping to bring
the grapes to their full potential.
In the 1970s, some inventive Italian winemakers undoubtedly had a
lot of bravado. They had the confidence to challenge the status quo
(and rules) regarding which varietals were allowed to be blended into
Italian wines. As a result, the “Super Tuscan” was born.
Eclipse Bravado is medium ruby colour with inviting aromas of dried
fruit and smoky leather notes. The palate is round and full with rich
cherry and plum leading to warm vanilla and a hint of spice.
Food Pairing: Super Tuscans and meat go hand in hand as a lot of Tuscan dishes
feature braised beef or veal. Hearty, meaty wood fired pizza would
also complement the wine’s complexity and smoky notes.
STYLE: BOLD RED
