Indaco, Toscana IGT – 2009 – Tasting: Tenuta Sette Cieli – Knives & Corks

“Organic. This is also all estate fruit that was planted in 2001-2002. It is 40% Malbec (more on that in a minute), 30% Cabernet, and 30% Merlot. Malbec isn’t often found in the Tuscany area because it doesn’t do really well. However, the grapes that make it are sturdy from a hard-knock life of dry-farming. Irrigation is prohibited in the region, as it is in many regions throughout the world, so the vines have to fight hard to seek out water and survive. It’s believed this contributes to their poignancy. This is a fairly common practice, even it it isn’t required, and I’m a fan. This wine has lots of structure, credited to the strapping Frenchman in the room, or perhaps due to its being aged in French Oak for 14 months – regardless, I guess the French get the credit. It is full of red fruit, rich, and spicy, spicy, spicy. You wouldn’t go wrong buying this and saving it for when you burn your mortgage or send your kids to college. It was also Joel’s favorite.”
