Cabernet Sauvignon

Description

The grapes are small and round, almost black in colour and have a particular astringent flavour. Their tannins are dense and aristocratic. This variety is characterised by its complex fruity (blueberries, cassis, raspberries, blackberries), floral (violet, rose) and vegetal (green pepper, natural coffee) aromas and infuses wines with an elegant structure that is very well suited to ageing. The wines made from it have a notable intensity and depth of colour. The young wines are tannic, but following barrel ageing the aromas become more complex, enriched with notes of smoke, cedar, incense, liquorice… The resulting wine is deep red with violet highlights, full-bodied and aromatic, and gains finesse with ageing. Cabernet Sauvignon is usually vinified with other varieties, which considerably improves the wine.
