Don Guiseppe 2019
Don Giuseppe is the “red of reds” in our wine portfolio. This unique blend keeps the consistency and quality of its predecessor vintage 2013, yet begins to show the result of the plant’s evolution with age and the synergic combination of its blended varietals. This fine Meritage is just starting to build its name in Illinois.
This Wine's Characteristics
Don Giuseppe is a blend of many varietals including Frontenac, Chancellor, Marechal Foch, and Corot Noir, among other “secret” varietal components. This wine is fermented in stainless steel and aged for 18 months in American and French oak barrels. You will encounter deep, exotic, mineral notes and hints of the wine’s cedar perfume, silky and round, with exotic black berry and cherry hints. You may also pick up a trace of mint, cassis and fine tannins.
Don Giuseppe is best paired with robust meats: a juicy steak, grilled lamb, braised pork, the list goes on and on!
