About This Wine

  • WINEMAKER

    Some (relative) newcomers on the wine scene have a great past. Take Supremus. Launched in 2009, it was actually over thirty years in the making. Its creators, Neil and Maria Empson, set up Neil Empson Selections in 1972 and later founded several of their own brands from various Italian regions. Tuscany had always been a favorite, as was working with their winemaker of choice and close personal friend, Franco Bernabei, the maestro of Tuscan reds – AKA “Mr. Sangiovese”. The combined passion and experience of Empson and Bernabei has brought splendid fruit in this “Supremus Tuscan” that epitomizes the harmony of Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. The grapes hail from a few of the region’s finest vineyard sites in the areas of Maremma, Colline Pisane, Colli Fiorentini and Chianti Classico. Vines are over 25 years old, yielding small, highly concentrated crops.
  • PRODUCTION

    Coastal grapes guarantee structure, with plenty of sun and early ripening, while inland, hillside grapes enjoy important day/night temperature swings, lending fruitiness and acidity. Fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks at 25 °C (77 °F), followed by maceration on skins for 15-20 days and malolactic fermentation. The wine is then ages one year in oak (80% Slavonian barrels, 20% barrique). At least 10-20% of the French barrique is new, while the rest is second use. Slavonian barrels are 5-6 years old. In the words of enologist Franco Bernabei, “Larger barrels are good for slow aging and maintaining fruit, finesse and elegance. Barrique is good for complexity and structure, as well as a light, toasted and vanilla nuance which, blended into the mass of barrel-aged wine, creates a floral fusion integrated by a subtle spicy tone, without compromising the floral character of Sangiovese.” Bottle aged for one year.

    93 POINTS! James Suckling, 2013 vintage

    "This is the best Supremus ever with a beautiful balance of dark berry, wet earth and dark tea character on the nose and palate. Full body, polished texture and a long and flavorful finish."
