Tenuta Il Palagio - 2016
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!
92 Points – James Suckling, ‘This is a big and rich young red with light plum-jam, vanilla and chocolate character. Full body and velvety tannins.‘ JamesSuckling.com September 2018 (2016 vintage)
