The Cabernet Sauvignon vineyard was planted in 1985 and is the oldest existing vineyard on Etna planted with this grape variety. It is very interesting to note how the aromatic characteristics of this variety are greatly influenced by the soil and climatic conditions of the territory. The soils and microclimatic conditions confer a strong minerality and a remarkable elegance and aromatic complexity which makes it different compared to other regional, national and international expressions of the Cabernet Sauvignon. The sensorial characteristics make it very suitable for combinations with grilled meat and game.
Longevity 5-10 years.
