Grape: Cabernet Sauvignon
Brand name: Cortona D.O.C. Cabernet Sauvignon
Aging: one year in French oak barrels
Colour: Brilliant ruby red
Sensory evaluation: clean and elegant flavour, with hints of wild berries, intense balsamic feelings and liquorice scents; delicate vegetal aromas evolve into more intense spicy notes. Woody scents evoke cocoa and tobacco perfumes, which gradually spread into hints of potpourri and lavender. The palate is strong and sweet, with deep and crunchy tannins. The sapid and dry mouthfeel is interestingly balanced; it makes the taste rich and precious, thanks to hints of blueberries and walnut hulls which last for a very long time.
