The Oddbins Take

A wine made in Tuscany that comes from the estate owned by musician sting and producer Trudie Styler.

The nose displays aromas of cherries, wild blackberries and spices.

The palate has a richness of fruit but one that is balanced both by careful use of oak and a refreshing acidity.

Cherrywood, tea leaves and bramble fruits can all be found on the palate. Supple fine grained tannins provide a lovely structure to this long and satisfying wine.

Il Palagio has always been farmed. In the late 1700s the Martelli family purchased the property and as their wealth grew, so did the estate. In 1819 they sold to the Countess Carlotta Barbolani of Montauto, the widow of the Duke of San Clemente and it remained in this family’s hands for some 150 years.

At the beginning of the twentieth century Duke Simone Vincenzo Velluti Zati di San Clemente commissioned several new buildings including a grain store, oil mill and wine production area. When Sting and Trudie first came across the estate in 1999, it had by then fallen into a state of disrepair. They set about the task of lovingly restoring the house, the outbuildings and the land to their former glory.
