Our version of this famous red blend "Super Tuscan" style from the Marrema sub-region of south-west Tuscany

Viticulture and Harvest

The fruit for the 2021 Il Palio blend comes from the di Lusso Estate vineyard and another vineyard in Mudgee. 


Components – Cabernet Sauvignon,. Sangiovese and Barbera are separately vinified. French-oak barrels (new and medium-aged) are used. End-result is determined by bench trials.

All red winemaking at di Lusso is completed in open top fermenters, with no pumping over – just two plunges of the cap each day. This is a gentle way to make reds, preserving the more delicate of the aromatics while also minimising tannin extraction. Tannin extraction increases significantly at temperatures over 24 degrees, so the juice generally does not go above 28 degrees during this stage.

The wines were aged in barrel and tank. Blend percentages were: Cabernet Sauvignon (80%), Barbera (10%) and Sangiovese (10%). Analysis: pH 3.64Residual sugar <.5 g/L, Alcohol 14 51%.

Tasting Notes

The Cabernet Sauvignon component gives the wine its firm structure. Flavours of blackberry and blueberry  are attributes of the Cabernet and Barbera, while its savoury touch comes compliments of the Sangiovese. Toasty French oak carries across the palate, with flavours of chocolate and spice. Match with just about any red meat or hard cheese.

Cellar for 8 years.
