From: Tuscany, Italy
Varietals: 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot, 10% Sangiovese
Hebo, the name for this blend, is taken from that of an ancient Etruscan settlement as a nod to the historical roots of Suvereto. It is produced with a classic assemblage of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Sangiovese, varietals introduced to this area by Elisa Bonaparte Baciocchi. Fermentation takes place in stainless steel vats using indigenous yeasts, and the wine is aged for about one year in mostly Slavonian oak barrels, with a small percentage of used barriques. The wine is then aged in the bottle for 6 months before release.
Tasting Notes: The color is a shining ruby red and the aromas reveal notes of black cherry, violets, and blueberry, followed by seductive mineral hints and nuances of Mediterranean scrub. On the palate, the wine is structured but fresh, savory, lively, and youthful. The finish is pleasantly fruited, made delicate by the savory base and soft tannins.
“Aromas of mulberries, red plums, stewed tomatoes, tobacco and earth. It’s medium-bodied with round tannins. Fresh, juicy and savory with a flavorful finish. Drink now or hold.” –James Suckling, 92 points
