Fantinel, Sant' Helena Cabernet Sauvignon delle Venezie

Hand-harvest Cabernet Sauvignon grapes are employed for this wine; about 20% of them undergoing appassimento, drying for about eight weeks prior to fermentation. Maceration with a submerged cap lasts about 25 days; before racking and ageing in large Allier and Slavonian oak barrels for 18 months. Vibrant ruby-red, the nose is loaded with dark fruit and notes of forest undergrowth; the palate is elegant with blackberry fruit and spice on the finish.
