2020 marks the third release of Classico d’Osoyoos, a single vineyard, Sangiovese dominant Tuscan blend. Classico d’Osoyoos is our attempt at building an old-school red wine, think classic claret or pre-modernization Tuscan reds. A wine that harnesses the lithe and ethereal qualities and celebrates these qualities over weight and concentration. If you’re a fan of the more elegant, linear and old-school styling of Chianti and coastal Tuscan reds, then Classico d’ Osoyoos is for you. 2020 Classico D’Osoyoos, has more weight, stuffing and length compared to the previous two releases, hallmark of the small but tremendously high-quality nature of the 2020 growing season. While it can be enjoyed upon release, its best days are a few years away.
