Tasting Notes
Style: Super Wallan – developed by Chuck Reininger by combining the blending style of Sangiovese and Bordeaux varietal grapes known as Super Tuscan, with the aging style of Brunello di Montalcino Riserva requiring five years of aging.

Five years of patience and aging has brought the advent of Cima, the marriage of a Tuscan bride who discovered her Bordeaux lover in the folds of the Walla Walla Valley earth. Sumptuous velvet tannins embrace the brightness of sour cherry, the strength of dark plum and the youthful adventure of blackberry to brush ones sole with gentle comfort and wisdom, similar to the affectionate touch of a grandmother’s hand.
