Wine Enthusiast 88 - A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah, Montepulciano, Sangiovese and a drop of Petit Verdot, this has aromas of pressed blue flower, dark-skinned berry and toast. The firm, straightforward palate offers black currant, clove and a hint of tobacco. Fine-grained tannins proved the frame work.
642° is produced on the ‘Tenuta La Badiola’ estate at the 42nd degree of latitude in the Tuscany region of Maremma. It’s 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.
Dark violet color. 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.
