Villa Il Palagio estate lies amid the rolling hills of the lush, fertile Tuscan countryside south of Florence. The private home of Sting and his wife Trudie Styler and the favorite retreat for their friends and growing family, this truly remarkable sixteenth-century estate nestles among the vineyards of the Chianti region.From the mid-1500s Il Palagio has harvested, fermented and bottled its own wines. Sting and Trudie have gone to great lengths to keep the tradition alive. Using organic farming methods, they have replanted 27 acres of vineyards since 2000. This Tuscan red is a blend of 90% Sangiovese and 10% Ciliegiolo. To preserve the fruit nuances the wine ages in stainless steel with just 20% of the Sangiovese aged in barrel. It shows deep and ruby red color and intense and fruity notes of ripe red fruits and sweet spices. There’s a harmonious structure and well-polished tannins, with a long finish.
