BACIO DIVINIO CELLARS PROPRIETARY RED 2013
Bacio Divino produces five labels – the original Bacio Divino (Cabernet Sauvignon, Sangiovese & Petite Sirah), Pazzo (a 5-variety blend), Vagabond – a Syrah Cabernet Sauvignon blend. In addition they produce several vineyard designated wines simply called Janzen including from their own vineyard and from select Beckstoffer vineyards. And Lucie, wines from neighboring Sonoma County (Chardonnay and Pinot Noir).All their wines consistently receive excellent ratings by Robert Parker (including mention of their original vintage in his Wine Advocate newsletter) as well as other well-known wine critics. Janzen was originally called one of the “20 new Cabernet Sauvignon labels to watch” by the Wine Spectator. One of their philosophies is you can drink wines young. Case in point is the Pazzo, which means “crazy” in Italian. In the 1990s Claus decided to make a red blend – but rather then create a Bordeaux style blend like other wineries, he decided not to be constrained by the types of varieties used in this wine – and focus on a Sangiovese based wine. It is a unique blend where varieties and percentages change over the years but is always Sangiovese dominated with Cabernet Sauvignon, Petite Sirah, Syrah & a white variety, Viognier. The result is an easy drinking lively wine that is extremely popular at bistro’s and wine bars. It is also very decently priced.
