Il Carnasciale (2nd wine of Caberlot)2007

$156.00

The 2007 Carnasciale bursts from the glass with explosive dark berries, grilled herbs, smoke and tobacco. Round and succulent through to the finish, the Carnasciale caresses the palate with gorgeous richness. While not inexpensive, this is a great introduction to the house style. Even though it carries the estate name, Carnasciale is actually the second wine, and is a selection of barrels that don’t make it into the flagship Caberlot. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2019. Il Carnasciale is one of Italy’s cult wineries. The tiny production is typically snapped up by those in the know, but the wines really do merit the effort required to find them. The estate’s vineyards are planted with a clone believed to be a cross between Cabernet Franc and Merlot that combines the aromatics and structure of the former with the fruit of the latter.
