Cabernet Sauvignon Terre degli Osci IGT 2017

This noble red is made from 100% estate-grown Cabernet Sauvignon that is hand-harvested in October and vinified in stainless steel tanks.  The unique landscape and terroir of Molise create a delicious expression of this international varietal.  The resulting wine serves as a testament to the talent of this dynamic winemaking team.

Tasting Notes

Deep ruby-red in color, aromas of baked plums and black fruits complement undertones of cassis, tobacco leaf, leather, and sweet spice.  On the palate, rich tannins and good acidity make for a mouthwatering wine with good aging potential.

Food Pairing

Pair this wine with pizza, tomato sauces, sweet soppressata, and andouillette.
