“Il Palagio is like stepping into a painting. And one of my favorite places on Earth. I hope you fall in love with it as much as I have.” – Sting
Casino delle Vie is a 19th Century farmhouse located on Il Palagio, the private home of superstar Sting and his wife. On the lush, fertile Tuscan countryside south of Florence, the Estate includes 65 acres of vineyards, 8,000 olive trees and 80 bee colonies though Sting leaves the winemaking to more experienced hands.
The 2015 “Casino delle Vie”, rated 92 points by James Suckling, is comprised of 80% Sangiovese, 9% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Merlot, 2% Cabernet Franc. The combination of Sangiovese with the Bordeaux varietals make this a true Super Tuscan.

MySomm Tasting Notes: “The beauty of these awesome Super Tuscan wines is that the combination of traditional Italian grape varieties with the Bordeaux varietals often leads to a nose showing an exotic combination of juicy red & black fruit along with pretty floral aromas and enticing herbal tones. The palate shows dried black cherry, dark plum, & hints of burnt orange peel. It’s a medium+ to full-bodied wine with robust, yet elegant tannins. Drink now with a homemade Pappardelle pasta & goat ragout.”
