K&L Notes

Rob Lowe, Tom Cruise, Matt Dylan (among others), young, greasy and clad in lots of form fitting denim. It was 1983, and being an Outsider was never so sexy or delicious! If you could bottle these guys in their prime, you might have a close approximation to this blend of equal parts Cabernet and Merlot, grown in Umbria of all places and made by the master of Umbrian wine, Arnaldo Caprai. Aged for 18 months in French oak, it is a seamless, opulent and rich Super Tuscan, except of course it does not come from Tuscany! That's the play on words, though we prefer the above connotation! Drink or hold for many years to come.

- Once named Enotria for its abundant vineyards, Italy (thanks to the ancient Greeks and Romans) has had an enormous impact on the wine world. From the shores of Italy, the Romans brought grapes and their winemaking techniques to North Africa, Spain and Portugal, Germany, France, the Danube Valley, the Middle East and even England. Modern Italy, which didn't actually exist as a country until the 1870s, once produced mainly simple, everyday wine. It wasn't until the 1970s that Italy began the change toward quality. The 1980s showed incredible efforts and a lot of experimentation. The 1990s marked the real jump in consistent quality, including excellence in many Region that had been indistinct for ages. The entire Italian peninsula is seeing a winemaking revolution and is now one of the most exciting wine Region in the world.
