Savoia SBC 2014 1.5L
Savoia is a purely Palmina wine first released in 2002. Steve Clifton felt that these three varietals— Nebbiolo, Barbera and Syrah — would interact deliciously together and was confident enough in the blend that he has never changed the percentages. Since the parts of the blend never change, the flavor profile of the wine is vintage driven (as opposed to a stylistic blend that changes year to year) and represents that year's climate conditions in Santa Barbara County.
Savoia is a blend of three wines: Nebbiolo (50%), Barbera (25%) and Syrah (25%). The Nebbiolo creates structure, tannins and savory aromatics, the Syrah adds fruit and fleshiness and the Barbera helps loosen the tannins and lengthen the finish.
