Cabernet Sauvignon and Sangiovese 2011
The sun-filled, early-maturing 2011 vintage perfectly expresses the qualities of Trecento . The wine appears an intense, youthful fruit that is fully ripe yet at the same time crisp and lively, backgrounded by delicate nuances of balsam and toastiness. On the palate, the powerful concentration immediately impresses, as do the tannins, massive yet silksmooth and glossy, which allows the wine to completely fill the mouth but with no feeling of heaviness. The finish, near endless, is deliciously pungent and spicy, with a welcome crispness throughout.
The Sangiovese, from the Latin "Sangius jovis", is the predominant grape-variety in this wine and the calm, elegant characteristics of the Cabernet give this wine ample olfactory complexity and greater strength to both body and flavor. Bright and intense ruby red color. Enveloping, elegant, classic perfumes with fruity and balsamic notes that duet each other in a delicious organoleptic balance. Taste of extraordinary class, intact, with fine and velvety tannins. Very long finish.
The prime quality and structure of this wine demand excellent first courses and risottos with sauces made from wild boar and hare, tasty red meat dishes such as roast game, vegetable soufflé and spicy mature cheeses.
