Sofia Barbanera’s Saracosa is one of our best-selling, most popular Italian reds. Grateful for such a positive response, she’s crafted this limited-edition luxury version. It will be a serious treat for lovers of any super-rich red—and will definitely impress in its MAGNUM, 1.5-liter bottle.

Sofia turned to Tuscany’s historic governo method and allowed a portion of her ripe Sangiovese to air dry for 20 days—this dials the flavor concentration and complexity of the wine way, way up. Adding a dash of Merlot imparts a soft, plummy smoothness and time aging in oak barrels weaves inviting spice notes throughout.

Look for vibrant red fruits (think strawberry and cherry), plus creamy chocolate raisin and vanilla oak notes. One sip and you’ll see why Italy’s top critic, Luca Maroni, has rated it 98 points for four vintages in a row!

Like any red made with this level of care, there aren’t that many MAGNUM bottles to go around—give governo a try today and see what the buzz is all about.
