Description

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 When we Dance, this beautiful wine is produced from predominately Sangiovese with small amounts of  Canaiolo and Colorino.  A deep red colour, aromas of strawberry and raspberries with hints of  herbs.  Lovely flavours of red berries and cherries with a balanced and smooth silky finish.

 

A lovely accompaniment to a Tuscan Bean Stew, Pizza, Rich Pasta Dishes.

 

 

 

 

This wine is perfect for all Tuscan dishes as well as beef and rich chicken recipes.
