Winemaker Notes

The grapes are grown on a hill above Lucarelli and training is Guyot and spur-pruned cordon. Fun and youthful, Il Volano matures in steel and bottle so as to maintain its freshness and fragrance.

Blend: 75% Sangiovese, 25% Merlot

Although Cabernet has many important outposts throughout the wine world, nowhere else has it achieved such success (and, at the highest end, commanded such lofty prices) than in Napa. Here, it is responsible for bold, opulent, and dark-fruited wines with grippy tannins and a healthy dose of alcohol. The best examples can age for decades. Each of Napa’s smaller sub-AVAs imparts a different character to Cabernet, such as [Rutherford’s] famous dust or [Stags Leap District's] tart cherry flavors.
