IGT Rosso Perpaolo - Molino di Sant'Antimo
Cabernet Sauvignon has recognizable, well-defined aroma characterized by a smell of violets, blackcurrant, jammy ripe berries, cedar, oak, chocolate, pepper and earth, with a great deal of variation in flavor depending on seasonal weather and bottle age. Nonetheless, this wine retains a remarkable ability to be recognizably Cabernet, with a full mouth-feel and the enhanced complexities of a year spent in small French oak barrique barrels.
