BlueStem Winery is excited at the prospect of offering 18 liter wine kits (with the crushed grape packs) from Cellar Craft International. These wine kits will be available approximately August 15, 2007 from our website at http://www.bluestemwine.com/ and we hope you will take a look at these premium quality 16 liter wine kits that have a 2 liter crushed grape pack accompanying the ingredient kit.
Rosso Fortissimo is a Super-Tuscan style wine which uses Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Sangiovese grapes along with other Italian varietals. This wine is fermented over crushed Merlot grapes from Washington's Yakima Valley.
Rosso Fortissimo is a big, full-bodied wine with solid structure and bold fruit notes and features complex cassis, plum and cherry flavors to balance its bold tannins.
French and American oak contribute a toasty vanilla flavor and add greater depth to this intense wine.
This wine requires a minimum of six months aging and 12 months is much better. A very special wine will be yours to enjoy if you can bottle age this wine for 2 years.
