Five Star Vintage, Dreamy Super Tuscan, 92pts Galloni

I loved this wine and what a price we have. Casali di Bibbiano has decided to change business partners in the US and we were able to grab their inventory from the old partner at a great price. I tasted through what was available and this wine the 2007 Casali di Bibbiano Luminoso was spectacular. Super Tuscans as a category was created by us the wine industry to classify some of Italy's finest red wines that do not fall into any legal Italian classification. Some of world's great reds like Sassicaia, Ornelaia and Solaia are Super Tuscans and today's Luminoso is a great bottle of wine. Casali Di Bibbiano winery is situated Buonconvento in the Siena region, one of the best locations for wine lovers, 25-acres hidden in the hills of Tuscany dedicated to the cultivation of grapes that produce superb wines. The town is an ancient settlement, along the Via Cassia, where the Arbia and Ombrone rivers meet in the heart of the magical hills of the Crete Senesi. Owner Alberto Guadini is a famous US restaurateur, including the famous Teca in Pennsylvania and Salute in Florida. Guadini got tired of serving mediocre wines in his restaurants and always dreamed of making his own wines in Tuscany. Casali di Bibbiano was born. No money was spared to make the best possible wines. He hired top Tuscan winemaker Gioia Cresti to make the wine. She is also winemaker at Fattoria Carpineta Fontalpino, one of the finest in Tuscany. The 2007 Luminoso is sourced from thirty year old Sangiovese vines, low yields that is aged for 18 months in New French oak. 2007 is a classic vintage in Tuscany and this wine has come together brilliantly. Now I have a limited amount of the wine at a great price. Wine on release sold for $45, you can have for $22.99 a bottle by the case, a 50% savings and a 92pt rating. If you love the best from Tuscany, this is a great buy. The wine has entered it drinking window and can be enjoyed over the next decade. We have many fans of Fontodi's wines, this wine is very similar, same style and you cannot lose at the price.

TASTING NOTES:
This wine shows you just how great this vintage is. Complex aromas of new saddle leather, jammy black cherry liqueur, and other black fruits jump from the glass of this dense ruby-colored wine. There are layers of fruit and extraction, full body, no hard edges, and an explosive, long finish that lasts for nearly 30 seconds. The wine radiates across the palate with elegance and class. Enjoy it now and over the next decade.
