Reeve Libertine No. 5 Red Blend

No. 5 is mostly Sangiovese with dwindling amounts of Cabernet Franc, Dolcetto, Barbera, etc, mostly from 2018 + 2 barrels previous. The nose shows a bigger fruit component with black fruits, cherry and pepper and barrel spices. The palate is moderate in weight with soft red cherry, violets and gentle earth. D&M Tasting Notes

We're doing something a bit unique with the wines in the Libertine series. We've been holding back 3-4 barrels of the current blend each time we bottle to blend into subsequent editions. In effect, there are four barrels of No. 2 in the No. 3 and are will be four barrels of No. 3 in the No. 4. It's not quite a solera system but it's our own unique way to create a multi-generational lineage through the wine.

This edition of Libertine has wine from the 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018 vintages, which is why we label it XV or cross-vintage. It is composed primarily of Sangiovese but also possesses significant amounts Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Dolcetto along with small amounts of other varieties. We love the way the different ages and varieties play together in this unique wine that is not quite like any other. Winery Notes
