2016 Bel Lago Tempesta


Notes from the Winemakers 
For those who believe Michigan can’t deliver a high-quality red wine on par with the world’s best wine regions, Tempesta proves them wrong. This exceptional blend is only crafted during outstanding vintages that are worthy of carrying the Tempesta label. Even then, Bel Lago’s winemakers painstakingly review each barrel of wine that is considered to be a contender for the blend, choosing only the select few deemed to be the absolute best. The result is a wine perfuming temperate, dark fruit and toasted oak  that uncovers a harmoniously integrated flavor experience. Floral, fruity and earthy, with hints of chocolate and leather, Tempesta is an elegant wine that’s ready to impress.
