Rubacuori is an Italian word and translates to “stealer of hearts”. It is our reserve Sangiovese.
A good Vintage for the King Valley. We had good average rains during winter, which proved to be the foundation for excellent growing conditions during spring. Flowering and fruit set for all varieties was quick and even. The ripening season was nice and slow so maximum maturation of the fruit was achieved, resulting in wines of powerful aromatics and intensity.

Winery Tasting Notes
The 2005 Rubacuori Sangiovese has a profound sense of depth and concentration on the nose with dark plums and cherries, earthy, nutty, cedary oak, liquorice and cassia bark notes.
The palate's deep, ripe and soft fruit tastes of plum and spiced cherry, underpinned by supple, long tannins and terrific balance.
