Introducing Bravado

Jul 7, 2016

On the heels of the phenomenally popular Eclipse Forza, WinexpertTM is pleased to announce BRAVADO,  the newest Eclipse limited release.  Hailing from Tuscany, Bravado is a tribute to the Italian winemakers of the seventies who had the confidence (and bravado) to challenge the rules regarding which varietals were allowed to be blended into Italian wines.  The result of these rogue winemakers was the "super tuscan" and Eclipse Bravado is a beautiful example of this style of wine.  Now available at your Winexpert retailer for a limited time.
