Region: Bolgheri, Tuscany, Itay
Varietal: 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot, 18% Cabernet Franc & 2% Petit Verdot
Tasting Notes: A wine of great elegance and finesse, silkier and more vibrant than ever. In a cool vintage, one with a very long growing season, the Cabernet Sauvignon brought notes of aromatic herbs and mint along with crisp tannins which added length. The Merlot gave concentration and texture and ample sensations of plums and blackberries. The characterful Cabernet Franc contributed aromatic and flavor elegance, intensifying the finish and aftertaste with notes of liquorice and cassis. And, finally, the Petit Verdot combined very well with other varieties, underlining the wine’s spiciness.
