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 2020 vintage is purple red, crystalline and bright, on the nose it presents a synergistic sensorial profile between the descriptors of wood and those of cabernet. Partially tamed by the softness of the merlot. In the mouth it expresses the young maturity of a great red, alternating pleasant tannic sensations with sweet vinous sensations. Nose and mouth constantly evolving in the glass. Descriptors: cherry, coconut, chocolate, vanilla and final tobacco and infusions.
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
