A wine made from Cabernet Sauvignon grapes, a relatively new variety result of a chance crossing between Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc. The Ferretti wines (ferretti meaning little chips of iron) have a distinctive flavour given by the iron in the soil.
Intense ruby red in colour. Slightly grassy scent with hints of raspberry and blueberry; well structured and balanced with noble, very distinct tannins it is extraordinarily rounded and full- bodied. A wine that will improve over time.
red meat, poultry, venison, hard cheese.
