Quattrospine (4 spine) Aglianico, Tenuta San Francesco 2014

Tenuta San Francesco


This is a very interesting wine from Tenuta San Francesco, their Quattro Spine is a blend of Aglianico, Tintore and Piedirosso from old vines. This blend provides a very interesting drink that has a rustic, but elegant feel.  We are split 50/50 at secret cellar on this wine, its a marmite and something we like to stock as an alternative option. 

 

Tenuta San Francesco is located high up in the mountains, in the small town of Tramonti and we are proud to have established a close relationship with Tenuta San Francesco to represent them as their exclusive UK Distributor.
