Montepeloso Gabbro Toscana IGT Tuscany, Italy 2018
VINTAGE : 2018
COUNTRY : Italy
REGION/APPELLATION : Tuscany
VARIETALS : Cabernet Sauvignon
Gabbro embodies the essence of our noblest Cabernet Sauvignon vines, some of which are over 40 years old. It represents our ambition to produce a Cabernet Sauvignon that can hold its own with the best in the world. This wine is matured for 18 months in 80% new wood. We also use 400-litre barrels as well as barriques. The wine is subsequently stored in the bottle, usually for about nine months.
The wine displays a black cherry red color with violet shades.
The nose is very complex with intense aromas of black fruit intermixed with hints of “garrigue” herbs and spicy flavours.
On the palate the wine exhibits soft and rounds tannis. The 2018 Gabbro is elegant in style but also impresses with its mediterranean sensuality and its aromatic expression.
Venison and the best red meat.
