Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve

Our rarest wine, the Reserve Cabernet will age at great length and respond to the highest demands for varietal expression. The wine is based on a grape selection identified by long experience as the finest for our growing region, and grown in specially selected small vineyard blocks. It is aged at least a full year in old and new French oak barriques crafted for us in Piemonte, Italy. The sharing of a bottle of this wine contributes an occasion of its own, to pair with any celebration.
