Toscana IGT ‘Wine Obsession’

label image label image

Tasting Notes

Wine Obsession stands out at Vignamaggio, not only for the eccentric packaging but for the fact that it has no Sangiovese in it. A blend of Merlot (70-80%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (20-30%), some from old vines,  aged in barriques for 15-18 months. Wine Obsession bursts from the glass with tons of energy. Complex aroma with notes of fruit, spice and liquorice, which follow through into a flavor that is smooth yet intense. Enjoy with red meat and hearty dishes.

‘Obsession’ is a name that conjures images of what our dreams are often made of. Six labels painted by six different artists all adhering to a common theme, which changes every 3 vintages. Each 6-pack of Wine Obsession contains 1 each of the different label designs, in the same vintage.
