Rilento - Cabernet Sauvignon IGT

Rilento

Ruby red with violet highlights. Spicy aromatics on the nose and then engaging layers of complexity featuring red fruits, floral undertones and almonds. The finish is warm and elegant and well integrated with the French oak tannins. Ideal with red meats, cold cuts and cheese.

Serving Temperature: 16-18C / 60-64F

Winemaking
