Cabernet Sauvignon Toscana Igt 2016
Case of 12 bottles.
This wine is made from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon grapes sourced from estate vineyards in Montecucco (Grosetto Province). The soils are light and well-draining, and the planting density is medium using traditional Cordon trellising.
The grapes were hand-harvested in late September, early October, when the reached peak ripeness and maturity. Vinification was in temperature-controlled, stainless-steel tanks, then aged for 18 months in a mix of Slavonian oak casks and barrique. 13.5% alc./vol., less than 1 gr/L RS.
Tasting Note: Ruby garnet red in colour, with a slight purple rim. Classic, earthy aromas of wild berries, cherry, and blackcurrant , with notes of dried herbs, baking spices, and liquorice. Medium- to full-bodied, and rich on the palate. Firm tannins and a long finish. It may need a few minutes to open up.
Menu Matches: Complements fuller-bodied foods like steak, braised meat dishes, and game.
