Casino delle Vie
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.
Casino delle Vie is named after a property on the estate. Literally it means ‘little house by the roads’, but a more colloquial interpretation might be ‘the muddle of ways’, inviting philosophical musings on the paths we take in life ... after a few glasses of wine of course!
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)
Tenuta Il Palagio
Since finding the estate 15 years ago, Sting and Trudie have taken great pains to restore the villa, outbuildings, olive groves, and vineyards to their former glory, repecting history and architecture, and working along organic and biodynamic principles. With an expert and experienced wine team in place, the resulting wines are really top notch. Watch this space for honey and olive oil too!
