SOPRA CABERNET SAUVIGNON
Designation of origin: Costa Toscana Rosso IGT
Grape variety: Cabernet Sauvignon
Label: The label of this bottle also bears a special symbol; a miniature North Star, because the harvest time of our Cabernet Sauvignon coincides with the brightest phase of Polaris in Italy.
Vinification: Harvested by hand. A vibrating table is used to select the grapes, from vintage 2020 on with an optic sorting machine. Fermentation with indigenous yeast in steel tanks and subsequent malolactic fermentation in French barriques (first use). The wine is aged for 24 months in barriques. Afterwards, the wine is bottled (without filtration).

The colour is a compact, dark ruby red. The bouquet has its own character, with notes of myrtle (a Mediterranean shrub), elderberries, cassis and Mediterranean fruits and flowers. They give an impression of maturity, and of the wine's connection to its terroir. Soft and concentrated on the palate, with a robust structure and wonderfully mature and complex tannins. The finish is still young, but has much potential which will develop through further ageing in the bottle. A long-lasting, ready-to-drink wine that can also be left in the cellar a while.
It is difficult to say which combinations of food are best,
as this wine goes well with a wide variety of dishes. But if one thing is for sure,
it's that this red wine particularly suits meat dishes, especially beef.
