About This Wine:
The cork ensures your wine stays delicious. In a lovely bit of alchemy, it’s combined with two other key wine elements — grapes and yeast — to create the “C Factor” Super Tuscan from Elementus.
Antonini was at the forefront of the Super Tuscan’s genesis, one of the first to realize that Italy’s heritage variety, Sangiovese, could be blended with Cabernet Sauvignon to create a wine that exudes both richness and power. Little wonder that The Drinks Business and Decanter magazines ranked him among the top five wine consultants in the world in 2013 and 2015.
From an acclaimed vintage with enviable fruit ripeness, the 2017 Elementus “C Factor” Super Tuscan is big and full, with juicy dark berry flavors followed by pleasant, layered flavors. It’s a delicious wine with good persistence on the finish, crafted by a legend of Italian winemaking.
