About

95

"Expressive flavors of black currant, plum, cedar, coffee and oak spice are allied to a firm, tannic structure. Starts out rich and complex, tightening up on the finish. Impressive, but needs time. Cabernet Franc. Best from 2022 through 2040. 83 cases imported."

Product Description:

"Made mainly from Cabernet Franc, Maestro di Cava is a full-bodied Bolgheri Superiore.

This wine requires two years to be released to market, one of which is spent in oak barrels. The result is worth the wait. Elegant and direct aromas with nuances of ripe black fruits, especially blackberries and cherries, and delicate hints of vanilla. Intense and full-bodied on the taste buds with fine, mature tannins and an enduring finish. This is a wine ennobled by time. The perfect accompaniment to stews, roasted and game, mature and blue cheeses, as well as meat- and cheese-filled pasta." - Winery
