Cabernet Sauvignon Friuli DOC Grave
The origin of Cabernet-Sauvignon are uncertain: some think that it comes from Epirus, while for others it would be the Vitis Caburnica described by Pliny the Elder in his Naturalis Historia and would correspond to the Greek grape (and wine) Kapnios.
Tasting Notes
At the sight it has a decided ruby red colour.
Approaching it to the nose we perceive a very intense, fine and complex aroma. Initially very elegant herbaceous and vegetal notes prevail: pepper, green pepper, aromatic Mediterranean herbs and balsamic notes. Then we taste fruity notes of wild berries and blueberries. In the end we enjoy the floral notes of violet and jam.
To the palate it has a robust and elegant structure, light and persistent tannins, round, soft with a full and fruity final. Excellent balance between freshness, tannin and softness.
It has an important taste olfactory persistence.
