Tuscan Elegance Reimagined: La Caccia di San Giovanni Rosso Toscana IGT

A Tapestry of Terroir and Tradition: Nestled within the undulating hills of Tuscany, La Caccia di San Giovanni emerges as a testament to the land's enduring allure and the visionary zeal of Dean Macfarlan. The story of La Caccia unfolds on a canvas of soil as diverse as it is fertile, with the estate's vineyards—planted in 2016—boasting a rich composition of clay, limestone, sand, and granite. This unique combination, untouched for centuries, sets the stage for wines that capture the essence of Tuscan terroir with authenticity and organic integrity.

The Craftsmanship of Vinification: At the helm of La Caccia's winemaking journey are Marc Gagnon and Michael Kennedy, whose stewardship marries the old with the new. With a commitment to expressing the distinctive character of the estate's terroir, the 2019 vintage of La Caccia di San Giovanni Rosso Toscana IGT is a bold testament to their philosophy. A blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Sangiovese, and 10% Petit Verdot, this wine is a harmonious ode to Tuscan craftsmanship, aged in 50% new French oak from the esteemed Tonnelieries Bel Air and Taransaud.
