ll Palagio is set above the picturesque Tuscan town of Figline Valdarno. It has been the summer home for Sting and Trudie Styler’s growing family for the last two decades. The villa, its guesthouses, vineyards and olive groves have all been lovingly restored by Sting and Trudie, and it is now a vibrant and fully functioning organic farm and vineyard. From the mid-1500s Il Palagio had harvested, fermented and bottled its own wines. Sting and Trudie have gone to great lengths to keep the tradition alive. Using biodynamic farming methods, they have replanted 11 hectares of vineyards since 2000. Resulting in a number of fine Tuscan red wines including Casino delle Vie, Sister Moon and When We Dance. Grape varieties cultivated here include the classic Tuscan red grapes Sangiovese, Canaiolo & Colorino as well as the more internationally renowned Cabernet Sauvignon & Merlot.
Named after Sting’s famous song Sister Moon, this beautiful wine is produced from Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Sangiovese and has been aged in new French oak for 18 months. A deep red colour, this full bodied wine gives aromas of rich dark fruits with a hint of chocolate. The palate follows through with intense flavours of blackberry, blackcurrant with cassis and plum. Complex and balanced with finely grained tannins, the finish is elegant and refined.
Perfectly paired with a Rich Tomato based Pasta, Charcuterie, Mature Cheese, Beef and Lamb
