North San Diego County is becoming a home for Italian grapes, and Fallbrook's Gracie Hill Vineyard is proving particularly hospitable. This Super Tuscan styled blend of 70% Sangiovese, 20% Merlot and 10% with Cabernet Sauvignon is bright and spicy on the nose, and shows fleshy red fruit character in the mouth, with complementary Tuscan herbs as you would expect in a wine of this type. It's perfectly blended and would slip into a blind tasting of Italian wines with ease. Very nicely done! A Platinum Award winner at the 2015 Critics Challenge International Wine
