Maculan Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot Brentino 2011

Maculan Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot Brentino 2011

Sku: 900028

Tasting notes
Dark in the glass. Aromas of dark fruits, spice, violets, leather, earth. Full bodied with a solid structure. Very good but supple tannins. Has good uniqueness and character. Cabernet fruit is full and ripe without any excess. Bold and a bit savage. Cabernet...yes. Italian...definitely!

This savory Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon blend offers aromas of bell pepper, red currant and plum that carry over to the palate, along with toasted sensations of espresso and oak. Its linear structure will pair well with grilled chicken seasoned with rosemary and grilled vegetables.

Wine maker notes
Brenta is the main river near Breganze, and is also the name for a wooden basket, worn like a backpack, that was traditionally used to transport grapes during harvest. This Bordeaux-inspired red is a blend of 50% Merlot and 50% Cabernet Sauvignon that Fausto Maculan has crafted into a quintessentially Italian wine. To ensure the perfect balance between fruitiness and softness, the wine is aged for one year, 50% of it in French barriques, and 50% in stainless steel tanks.
