Maremma Toscana 6 42 Red Blend
"642° is produced on the 'Tenuta La Badiola' estate at the 42nd degree of latitude in the Tuscany region of Maremma. Its unique blend of 6 different types of grapes creates a rich, luscious, complex and extremely elegant wine that combines the best of tradition with a new interpretation of European varietals. Aromas are of wild berry fruits, like blackberry and dried plum which then yield to richer impressions of candied fruit and dark chocolate. Nuances of vanilla and tobacco leaf. Rich and full-bodied in the mouth, this wine has tannins that are perfectly balanced and well integrated. A lively acidity brightens its fruit. The long-lived, delicious finish is infused with aromatic, ripe fruit." From Italy.

Pale yellow with green nuances; very delicate bouquet, fragrant with extremely pleasant aromas. Very fresh and well-balanced flavors. With a crisp and elegant finish. Medium to light-flavored food, especially light hors d'oeuvres, bronzino or other white fish and white meat based dishes. From Italy.
