A favorite wine returns and it's better than ever. The perfect 10 Brutocao Quadriga.
A blend of Sangiovese, Primitivo, Dolcetto and Barbera (with a touch of Syrah) from Mendocino? Indeed! This is a wine that would make any Italian proud.
We're big fans of the wines from Brutocao Cellars here at Reverse Wine Snob and this truly unique, very small production, estate bottled Italian varietal blend from the Bliss, Feliz and Contento vineyards is near the top of the list.
(Estate bottled indicates that these are all estate grapes and the entire wine production happened at the winery, meaning the entire process from growing the grapes to making the wine is under the winery's control.)
We last offered the 2016 vintage of this wine and are delighted to bring you the 2018 vintage today - which we rated even higher.
The wine has an SRP of $28, although that is soon to be raised to $34 by the winery.
Today's Insider Deal gets you 4 bottles of the Brutocao Quadriga for just $79.99. That's a discount of 36% with the additional savings from our $5 shipping!
Buy multiples and you save even more since you'll never pay more than $5 shipping, no matter how many 4-packs you buy. Keep on reading for our full review.

From the winery:
Quadriga, a “chariot carried by four horses”, is an ancient Italian symbol of triumph. Celebrating our Italian heritage, we created a proprietary blend of Sangiovese, Primitivo, Barbera, and Dolcetto. Reminiscent of traditional Italian field blends, but with richer, brighter, and more fruit-forward flavors, the velvety smooth texture of delicious wine pairs well with everything from casual dining to your fanciest meals.
Wine Maker Notes: With aromas of lavender and plums, our unique combination opens with red delicious apple, followed with blueberries and floral notes.
Grown, Produced and Bottled by Brutocao Cellars
The 2018 Brutocao Quadriga is a blend of 29% Sangiovese, 36% Primitivo, 18% Dolcetto, 14% Barbera and 3% Syrah. The wine spends 18 months in 90% French and 10% American oak, 25% of which was new. Only 900 cases were produced and the wine received 91 points from Wine Enthusiast magazine (a number we think is rather low).
The wine opens with a very nice, enticing aroma featuring an assortment of red and dark berries, loads of varied baking spice notes, licorice and lots of other touches to discover as you sniff and swirl it.
It gets even better when tasting this really delightful blend of Italian varietals. With wonderful juicy fruit, lovely and well-integrated oaky spice notes and a smooth mouthfeel, this is a delicious, full-bodied and slightly tannic beauty. I love that this can be found in Mendocino!
It ends with a dry, very long, very savory, lovely finish. It's wonderful and the whole thing gets even better the more time it has to breathe, and especially on day 2.
