The volcanic 2013 Vigneto Due Santi, Zonta, Breganze
The 2013 Vigneto Due Santi, Zonta, Breganze is a unique wine in that the fruit comes from vineyards located on volcanic soils in the north-east of Italy. This particular vintage is quite hefty. The nose eludes to rather ripe fruit and the flavors are packed in with an appealing amount of texture. I would let this age for a couple years then drink a glass or two with a hearty meal. This wine is available at MacArthur Beverages.

Imported by Siema LLC. This wine is a blend of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon and 30% Cabernet Franc that was fermented in stainless steel tanks then underwent malolactic fermentation and 15-18 months of aging in new barrels. Alcohol 14.0%. The nose is packed with dense raisin and floral aromas backed by both underlying greenhouse and musk notes. In the mouth are similarly dense flavors of purple fruit, baking spices, and oak notes. This is a hefty wine with generous textured. The flavors are polished but it could stand another year or two of integration. *** Now 2018-2026.
