CASE BUY ALERT: Super Tuscan, Super Value: 2016 Sette Cieli Yantra
Posted on: 10/19/18 12:01 PM
Super Tuscans scratch an itch, that craving we all get for something big and rich, almost new world in character, but that retains something bitter and savory, something quintessentially Italian. Super Tuscans satisfy that craving with a crowd-pleasing grandness of gesture that everyone seems to enjoy.
The problem? Most Super Tuscans cost $100 and many much, much more.
So, we were delighted when we discovered Sette Cieli’s Yantra, weighing in at a modest $18.99 and overdelivering on the promise of Super Tuscan deliciousness: a little bit rich, a little bit rustic, and just the right amount of elegance to make it all work.
With 60% Cabernet and 40% Merlot from Maremma, on the Tuscan coastline, the Yantra offers a distinctly Italian take on these ancient Bordeaux varietals: licorice and mint, dried flowers and tobacco complement the dark red fruit flavors in a medium-bodied package that has a long, subtly bitter finish.
For the price, there are few that can compete with Yantra. This is an easy case buy and will keep good company with your fall fare at table.
