Bacio Divino Supertuscan Blend Napa Valley Pazzo 2007
When I set out to make Pazzo, I envisioned a wine that was convivial and memorable in the way of a splashy, somewhat raucous dinner party. To my mind, the 2007 vintage hits that very bull’s-eye. There’s spice and ballast here, owing to the Super-Tuscan components (sangiovese buttressed with cabernet and syrah), and as such the kinship to our higher-end wines is unmistakable. A serious wine, you could say...but please, no solemnity. Pazzo isn’t a Nobel laureate - merely the stunning hostess who greets you at the door with a kiss and a wink that says, “Stick around, buster.” Merely unforgettable, in other words.
