The Wine

Il Pareto, 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, was born in the 1980s as a Supertuscan
project and, already starting from the first vintage, it represents strength, power and sensory purity. This wine is part of a new vision of oenology, where we move from the study of native vines to the study of the suitability of the territory. It is not the vine that has adapted to the territory, therefore, but rather the discovery that the territory has the suitability for a limited production of grapes but characterised by a very high sensory complexity, where the typical characteristics of the grapes are maintained, enriching them with nuances and structure, body and elegance.

Tasting: 2019 exceptional sensory perception. Characterised by a deep and crystalline purple-red colour, this wine reveals intense and pleasing aromas reminiscent of red fruits, pomegranate, marasca cherry and prune. Notes of incense, bay leaf and black pepper. Dry, full-bodied and tasty on the palate. Aromatic aftertaste. A young wine of great complexity.
Pairing: Villa di Nozzole suggests to pair it with stewed hare and mashed cauliflower and truffle First vintage: 1987
Shelf life: up to 30 years
Curiosity: Pareto is the winery’s cru, a great challenge and a winning bet for the Cabernet Sauvignon grapes in the Chianti area. It is produced only in the best years.
