Cabernet Sauvignon Lazio IGP

label image label image

Tasting Notes

Cabernet Sauvignon is probably the most famous red grape variety in the world. Its vines adapt readily to the most diverse climatic conditions and eagerly embraces the characteristics of the volcanic, mineral rich soils of Lazio, the region of Central Italy where Rome is located.

A deep ruby-red wine. Silterra Cabernet offers raspberry, blackcurrant and black cherry aromas followed by balsamic, earthy notes of juniper and moss. The mouthfeel is smooth and rich, the tannins stylish, the finish complex. Ideal for rich meat dishes and unsalted, semi-mature Pecorino Romano, Lazio’s famous sheep’s milk cheese.
