2012 Riserva Famiglia Cabernet Sauvignon
The nose of this wine is focused and show notes of black currant, pencil shavings, eucalyptus, and cedar. This wine has plenty of layers which add to its complexity and balance; notes of forest floor, raspberry, coffee, cocoa powder and spice are present on the palate. The mouthfeel is textured and lively with acidity, with firm yet approachable tannins. The “Riserva Famiglia” title is only given to wines produced in the best vintage years which have passed a rigorous tasting panel. Made in the traditional appassimento style, vine dried for 4 weeks past traditional harvest dates and then rack dried in a single layer for 26 days. Dried in an ambient environment with forced air circulation to allow the fruit to slowly dry. Small batch fermented and aged in french oak for 2 years.
