The Cabernet Sauvignon grape variety is the great star of the world's most important wines, and a true example of elegance and complexity. It is a red grape variety originating from a spontaneous cross between Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon that has found its home and its glory in the Bordeaux area. Since the 19th century, it has spread throughout Italy, achieving resounding success in Tuscany in the production of the famous Supertuscan wines. If vinified as a single variety, it produces intense and long-lived reds, rich in tannin and with good freshness. The typical note of green pepper can give way, after long ageing in wood and bottle, to a splendid range of spiced aromas such as tobacco, leather, chocolate, coffee and dried flowers, indicative of great personality and elegance.
