About the Winery:
Bere, which means “to drink” in Italian, has long been our favorite little Super Tuscan blend and begs just that, to be drunk and enjoyed easily thanks to its rich, crushed berry fruit, earthy backbone and smooth, fresh finish. An inviting blend of Sangiovese with Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, aged in used French-oak barrels, it is made from the vineyards of Tenuta Ladronaia, a property located in the craggy hills of the Upper Maremma, a wild and rustic land known for cowboys and outlaws. In fact, “Ladronaia” comes from the Italian word for “thief,” and still today, the villa of the property still hides the cavern and tunnel used for centuries by pirates as a hideout and place to stash their loot. Since the 1900s, the Tenuta has been used as a winery and farm.
Bright, clear red colour. Aromas of red berries and violets. Excellent balance, freshness and pleasantness compliment delicate notes of cherries and fresh flowers. Young and vibrant wine.
Ideal with pasta and pizza, it is recommended as an everyday wine.

Ratings & ReviewsVinous Media:
"The 2015 Bere is one of the most delicious Tuscan wines readers will find in its price range. Bold, juicy and exuberant, the 2015 hits the palate with tons of cherry jam, blackberry, herb, lavender and sweet spice. This is an especially rich, lusty style built on immediacy. A more restrained use of oak might yield more complexity, but that does not really seem to be the goal here. Even so, its hard to argue with the quality given a price that often comes in below the full retail. Bere is a Sangiovese / Cabernet Sauvignon / Merlot blend from the Landini family, owners of Viticcio and I Greppi." - Antonio Galloni (11/2016)
