2010 Toscana Rosso Cavalli Tenuta degli Dei

A delicious and highly rated Super Tuscan. You loved our suggestions for Crognolo, you will love this one as well.

Our Impressions:
It is both compelling and reassuring when wine critics/publications The Wine Advocate (94 pts), Antonio Galloni (94 pts), along with The Wine Spectator and Decanter all recognize one wine. Incidentally this winery is across the road from Flaccianello, sharing the same great terroir.  Yes, this wine is a special find, an outrageous value, and we are excited to share it with you...

This Super Tuscan is just that highlighting an almost dark purple-crimson color that clings to the glass! On the nose and palate the dark blackberry, blueberry, and stewed Black Cherries are omnipresent; however the mid-palate brings forth hints of middle-eastern spices along with black tea and notes of cigar box and cedar. The acidity and minerality allow the finish to showcase these flavors in a round pleasing manner for close to a minute. The quality and complexity of this wine is astounding and a must at table to accompany your pasta Bolognese or grilled meats!

Wine Advocate, Monica Larner, 94Pts, Aug 2013:
"This is an extremely opulent, thickly concentrated blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (60%), Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc that peels back layer after thick layer. Sun-ripened berry, blackberry preserves, spice, cardamom, rum cake, leather and moist chewing tobacco all vie for your attention. Although it’s definitely on the ripe side, the great quality of fruit in 2010 shapes a soft, long-lasting feel in the mouth. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2020. Tenuta degli Dei is located in Panzano in Chianti and is run by Tommaso Cavalli, son of eccentric fashion designer Roberto Cavalli. The tiny winery is located in the basement of a country church. Unexpected as it may seem, Tommaso is a shy and hands-on guy who does everything in the winery himself. Although he doesn’t make a Chianti Classico, he is mulling over the possibility of doing so in the future."

Vinous, Antonio Galloni, 94 Pts, Sept 2013 :
"The 2010 Tenuta degli Dei is the best wine I have tasted from Tommaso Cavalli. Vibrant, nuanced and wonderfully crystalline in the glass, the 2010 is compelling. Violets, lavender, graphite and plum notes flow into menthol, pine and cloves as the 2010 shows off its personality. Today, the 2010 is positively explosive. The inherent richness of these international grapes grown in Panzano is beautifully complemented by the underlying tension and minerality of the vintage. The 2010 is 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Petit Verdot and 15% Cabernet Franc, aged in French oak barrels, 50% new."
