Tizzana Estate. Dr. Thomas Fiaschi grew Hermitage

which he named after his first daughter born in 1885.
The 2009 Clarissa is a a dry red blend made from hand-picked Petit Verdot (60%) and Shiraz (40%) grapes. Aged in American oak for 18 months.
||The aroma of the wine shows pepper and plum notes with toasted oak characters. 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.
