The Wine

For over five years, Cabreo has expressed the perfect harmony between tradition, innovation and suitability for the territory in which it is born: Greve in Chianti. This wine is the result of a careful blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Sangiovese, which respectively give softness, strength and elegance, and of a long aging in small French oak barrels.
Vintage: 2019 was a regular year with a good availability of water thanks to the spring rains and a not extremely hot summer. These conditions guaranteed the three variety grapes a quality harvest and an excellent yield.

Tasting: Deep ruby colour with purple nuances. Aroma of cherry, raspberry, rhubarb, cinchona, liquorice, hints of peanuts and sesame, wet dirt and dried herbs. Medium to full-bodied with a creamy texture and fine, plush tannins. Refined and round taste reminiscent of delicate fruit, chocolate and nuts. A silky finish.
Pairing: it goes perfectly with all meat dishes, great cheeses, or just enjoyed with friends.
First vintage: 1982
Shelf life: up to 20-30 years
Curiosity: The word Cabreo, as per authentic Tuscan tradition, indicates maps of the estates owned by the great Florentine families
