"Aromas of black cherries, licorice, and plum with red floral notes and spice. Nicely integrated tannins frame the flavors of red jammy fruit, anise, blueberries, currants and cinnamon with touches of cocoa and nutmeg."

A taste of Tuscany with this Reserve from Viansa and winemaker Marty Peterson. Since Viansa typically releases their Reserve tier wines late, giving it the ideal barrel and bottle age, the wines are accessible upon release. 2009 was a super harvest and this wine is drinking quite nice right now. This is a versatile wine made in a style to accompany Italian suppers like Veal Parmesan, Spaghetti Bolognese, Lasagna and Spaghetti and Meatballs. Aromas of black cherries, licorice, and plum with red floral notes and spice. Nicely integrated tannins frame the flavors of red jammy fruit, anise, blueberries, currants and cinnamon with touches of cocoa and nutmeg. Enjoy now and over the next several years.

The Winery
At Viansa Winery, we’re inspired by the easy way of life in Sonoma County, our home for generations. We craft our wines to be enjoyed every day - shared around a table of fresh food with family and friends. Our Viansa Reserve tier is a collection of varietal favorites and special blends, like this food-friendly, Super-Tuscan style red wine.
 
Vintage & Vineyards
The 2009 vintage was a good one, with a warm, dry spring and easy growing season. Temperatures were slightly cooler than previous vintages but warm temperatures extended into September, ensuring optimal ripeness of the grapes. The resulting wines exhibit the kind of beautiful balance and acidity that make them easy to pair with food. We sourced the wines for this blend from throughout our Sonoma County vineyards - wherever each varietal exhibited its finest expression.
 
Tasting Notes
This red blend is a medium-bodied, easy drinking wine with bold red fruit and spice characters. Aromas of ripe plum and cherry carry through to the palate where they are enhanced by notes of pepper and earthy mushroom flavors. Each variety - Merlot (47%), Sangiovese (29%), Cabernet Franc (14%), Dolcetto (8%), Tinta Cao (1%), and Tempranillo (1%) - adds its own signature to the blend, giving this wine a delightful complexity. Enjoy now through 2016. This food friendly Reserve Red is perfect with everything from your favorite pizza to grilled meats and vegetables. Also pairs nicely with classic Italian pasta dishes with tomato-based sauces such as Spaghetti Bolognese.
