Clarissa is named after Clarissas Vineyard,
one of the twenty vineyards that made up the original
Tizzana Estate. Dr. Thomas Fiaschi grew Hermitage
(Shiraz) and Petit Verdot grapes in this vineyard
which he named after his first daughter born in 1885.
The 2006 Clarissa is a dry red blend made from hand-picked
Petit Verdot (50%), Shiraz (25%) and Cabernet Sauvignon
(25%) grapes. Aged in American oak for 18 mths.
||The aroma of the wine shows violets,
plum and pepper notes. A medium bodied wine with an
excellent integration of both grape
and oak tannins. Will benefit with at least three to
five years of cellaring.
