Menfi, Sicily, Italy
70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Cabernet Franc
Grapes are de-stemmed and crushed, then macerate on the skins for 15-18 days. Fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks at 82°F. After racking, the wine matures in new French oak Allier barrels for 14 months, undergoing malolactic fermentation in barrel. Once bottled, the wine matures 12 months before release.
Deep ruby red
Rich and concentrated. Aromas of wild berries mingle with scents of macerated black cherries, leather, earth, cacao and mineral notes
Full-bodied, vibrant and concentrated, with a remarkably deep and dense tannic structure, yet elegant; aromas carry through to the palate, where they combine with spicy and balsamic notes
Enjoy with hearty beef stew and potatoes, grilled tuna steaks or roast fillet in a wine sauce.
