Cabernet Volpe Pasini

Cabernet

DOC Friuli Colli Orientali

The Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon were imported from France but actually acclimatized very well. It is a wine that is born aristocratic, full-bodied, dry. If Cabernet Franc is present there will be herbaceous notes. The color is intense ruby red, especially when the grapes maceration is prolonged. At first the acidity is high and it is rich in tannins, making it a wine apt to be aged. If ever present, with time the herbaceous notes, are lost, and it becomes refined, elegant, and with reflection verging on amber. The complex bouquet becomes enthralling.

Serving suggestions It is a great wine to serve with venison dishes.
