Napa Valley 'Overture' (750 ml.) - Opus One

'Overture' by Opus One is made in Oakville Napa Valley over a dark volcanic soil. It is made by assembling the best of different vintages, to obtain a wine of great prestige and possibility of evolution. The five grape varieties (Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot, Merlot and Malbec) are harvested by hand. After careful selection, the berries are placed in tanks for fermentation at a controlled temperature. Timeless expression of the company's vineyards, it reveals explosive hints of fruit and sweet spices, due to the prolonged stay in cask, in its youth, but it is destined to enrich its bouquet with long refinements. Limited edition.

Producing wine in harmony with the surrounding environment, capturing the best of its expressiveness: this is the goal of Opus One Winery, a prestigious Californian company. Already from the building that houses the cellar, perfectly inserted, almost camouflaged, in the context of the vineyards, this careful research can be grasped. Four parcels form the terroir where Opus One wines are produced: here the traditional varieties that make up the Bordeaux blend (merlot, cabernet franc, cabernet sauvignon, petit verdot) are grown with experience, passion and dedication. The attention and the human touch are fundamental to calibrate and enhance the characteristics of each single vintage. A unique and inimitable wine, the flagship of the company's production, Opus One represents not only the progenitor of the great Californian Cabernets but also the symbiosis between two of the most important wineries in the world: the Mondavi family and the Mouton Rothschild group. Born in 1979, the result of continuous research and improvement, in a very short time it established itself among the elite of contemporary winemaking thanks to an unstoppable qualitative growth. Today, more than thirty years later, it is in fact synonymous with a great Bordeaux cut thanks to a fabric and elegance that is truly out of the ordinary. Overture, "younger" brother but only for chronological reasons, reflects instead the artistic skill of the winemaker, who manages to combine the traditional varieties of the Bordeaux blend and at the same time capture the uniqueness of the terroir, since each grape variety is cultivated in different terrains. In addition to these elements, Overture also adds the “time” factor, combining different vintages to create a unique product.
