Aljoscha Goldschimdt is the owner and winemaker of Corzano e Paterno. This picturesque estate lies in the commune of San Pancrazio, just outside of Florence. Joshi is a farmer first; his 14 hectares of pristine vineyards are organically tended and are cropped at a low yield. Following the lead of Paolo de Marchi of Isole e Olena, Aljoscha has planted the new, high quality Sangiovese clones with tight spacing in order to create wines of distinction and elegance. In addition to the vineyards, the 200 acre Corzano e Paterno estate crafts olive oils and sheep's milk cheese under Joschi's leadership, though the next generation of his family is taking an increased role in the vineyard and cellar. 

This complex, Tuscan masterpiece, is a blend of 45% Sangiovese, 33% Cabernet Sauvignon and 22% Merlot. Rich and opulent, this "Super-Tuscan" is organically and artisanally produced. The wine is aromatically intense, with layers of dark red berries laced with earth, sweet tobacco, cedar and creme de cassis. The mid-palate is powerfully concentrated, loaded with lush red fruit with just the right touch of rusticity and the finish is long and lingering, with firm tannins. A superb balance of the traditional Sangiovese with the modern Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Enjoy with a Bistecca alla Fiorentina.
