DESCRIPTION

This Cabernet Sauvignon is a big and delicious wine. It has striking aromas of dark forest fruits, with fragrant notes of sage and discrete chocolate tones in the background. It is spicy and fruity with refreshing acids reminiscent of fresh cranberries. The fruit freshness remains on the finish. The wine is ideally paired with smoked meats and aged cheeses, smoked fish and roasted lamb. Aged for 24 months in old monastic oak barrels.
