Ry Richards’ Fiancetto is a decidedly no-frills operation. It is a bare-bones Napa Valley Cabernet project but with a distinctly complex style that belies its start-up winery structure.
You see, Ry’s day job is at one of Napa’s iconic estates, Chappellet, where he assists Phil Titus in all aspects of sourcing and winemaking. It leaves him in the perfect position to carve out great lots of wine for his own labels. If these lots of wine bore the nationally branded label they were intended for, they would sell for twice the Nicholas Wines price. But, Fiancetto is still a start-up and Ry needs to sell almost as fast as he makes it so for those in the know, Fiancetto is always an incredible deal. In the case of the 2017, it’s just about half off!
The latest rendition of the Gravelly Loam cuvée was sourced from warm vineyard sites on the Valley floor; their old vines rooted in the well-drained, gravelly soil that is just perfect for producing ripe Cabernet. The 2017 is jet black to the rim with primary aromas of cigar box, black fruit and mocha. The wine is just packed, with jammy flavors of red current, plum, and black berries. The finish is long and fruity with ripe, supple tannins. This is a big and powerful Cab, perfect for a juicy steak or just by itself.
Drink now for the incredible primary fruit or cellar for the next 3-5 years. But don’t delay, as past customers will attest, there is never enough of any of the 50% off Fiancetto Cabernet bargains!
