Cavaliere d’Oro not only showcases the iconic Chianti region, but other adventurous Tuscan reds as well as reds from the lesser-known regional gems of Puglia and Sicily.
Our Puglia has an attractive bouquet of acidic ripe cherries and plum, with pleasant sweeter notes of cocoa and vanilla. A velvety texture with notes of lush, ripe fruit. This wine offers a robust finish.
Our Toscana offers a balanced bouquet of wild red berries and violet. This is a delightful ruby red wine, providing a dry and smooth taste with great freshness, soft tannins and medium body.
Due to the focused winemaking while the grapes are drying, our winemakers ensure precise control of the ventilation to assist the grapes in reaching the ideal level of dehydration before pressing. This crafted a beautiful red wine that is dark and brooding. There is an opulent nose of candied figs and ripe fruit, that balance perfectly in both roundness and persistence on this full-bodied wine.
Our Alleanza is crafted from estate grown grapes and shows a lovely deep black cherry and spice nose that leads to richly textured berry flavors, with hints of anise, toasted oak and sweet spice. Fine soft tannins, long and lingering.
About the Regions
With Cavaliere d’Oro, we showcase the spectacular Italian reds that are found across Italy, each infused with the unique characteristics of its region.
The term ‘Super Tuscan’ simply refers to a wine produced in Tuscany that uses nontraditional Tuscan grape varieties (ie. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot) in its blend.
Sicily was one of the first Italian regions to practice the art of oenology, the study of wine and winemaking.
Puglia natives brought the Primitivo grape to America in the late 19th century, where it became known by the popular name Zinfandel.
