Discover Blended Red Wine Wines

In the United States, a red mix is any American wine that isn't produced from a single grape type. It's an odd classification since many, if not all, red wines are and have always been mixes. A grand cru Bordeaux produced entirely of Cabernet, as well as Chiantis made entirely of Sangiovese, are the exception rather than the norm. In addition, California law only requires a wine's label to contain 75% of the grape type.

Winemakers combine grapes because it enables them to create a wine in a sense. A splash of Merlot may help soften Cabernet's tannins, while a dash of Syrah can give watery, inexpensive Pinot some punch. Blending is common in several regions: Rioja, for example, has traditionally blended Tempranillo, Graciano, and Garnacha. Many modern, inexpensive red blends, on the other hand, are simply created for mass appeal—lots of superripe, black fruit and no acidity—using whatever varietals would suffice.

About the Producer: Tenuta di Castiglioni

Tenuta di Castiglioni is a Tuscan winery located in Val di Pesa, in the hills of Florence. The property is owned by the Frescobaldi family and is particularly known for its selection of IGT Tuscany wines, based primarily on Merlot, Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon. The Castiglioni estate is known as the birthplace of the Frescobaldi family winery, which dates back to the 14th century. The property has been family owned since the 11th century, and today each bottle of wine produced by Tenuta di Castiglioni bears the Frescobaldi family crest. The property's flagship wine, Giramonte, was first released in 1999 and is made primarily from Merlot and a small percentage of Sangiovese. This wine from a single vineyard is created from a prized estate variety in Comune di Montespertoli. The southwest-facing 7-hectare (17-acre) vineyard is located 820 feet (250 m) above sea level on soil composed primarily of sand and clay. This emblematic wine ages 16 months in oak and another six months in bottle. The second Tenuta di Castiglioni wine is a blend of red wines Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Sangiovese. The grapes are harvested from the 12-year-old Tenuta di Castiglioni vineyards and macerated with the skins for about 12 days. This maceration period is followed by a year of aging in oak barrels and another two months in the bottle.

    It’s no secret that I love this! I always have a bottle or 2 at home for those occasions or just because.
