Coppola's grandfather Agostino, grew up nearby Metaponto in Southern Italy, which thousands of years earlier, was home to a school run by the legendary Greek Scholar Pythagoras - Pitagora in Italian. Known today for his mathematical theorem (a² + b² = c²), he was also a great philosopher. Agostino grew up in the footprint of this legend and developed a talent for maths and music. Grapes from 3 Sonoma regions: Dry Creek, Alexander Valley and Knights Valley. Sophisticated blend of 32% Syrah, 18% Petit Verdot, 17% Cabernet Sauvignon, 17% Cabernet Franc, 14% Petite Sirah and 2% other red varietals. Full-bodied and dripping with dark, ripe fruit (blackberries, juicy plums and black currant) enlivened by smoky toasted oak, earthy notes and fragrant spice nuances. Generous tannins and creamy finish.
