Only 50 cases produced of what we are calling our Rolls Royce of wines. Aged in 100% new French oak for 23 months, and bottle aged for 12 months. Black licorice and dried basil on the nose. Pleasant and sophisticated flavors of sassafras root, cherry cola, cassis, loganberry, bay leaf, cocoa, and blackberry, with fine notes of eucalyptus and soft tannins on the finish.
In recognition of the first grape varieties ever planted on Locatelli soil, we blend our two oldest vines to create this timeless, lush and round beauty. The perfect gift or compliment to any large dinner party!
This blend of Cabernet Franc, Petite Sirah, and Petit Verdot mirrors the three knots the Franciscan Friars tie into their cintures (rope belt) symbolizing Poverty, Chastity, and Obedience. Fruit forward and approachable with black currant, dark berry medley, velvety tannins, and long blackberry finish.
Bright ripe apple and sea salt on the nose will lure you into a grassy meadow full of bushel baskets of stone fruit. Delicately hued and a smooth body will keep you engaged whether sharing at holiday meals or seeking refreshment on warm Summer days.
