Cabreo Il Borgo

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: The 2018 vintage is extremely precious in terms of quality and quantity produced. Hints of dried berries, cherries, chocolate and nuts. Full-bodied and tannins perfectly balanced. Dense and abundant on the palate.
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
