The combination of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, and Petit Verdot found in this area, created a wonderful wine that they are releasing under the name "gi amo". This play on the Italian word "ti amo", meaning "I love", is a tribute to the time and passion they put into every bottle they make.
