(CABERNet from ASCOli Piceno)
Offida Rosso Certified D.O.C.
his prestigious wine is made from Cabernet Sauvignon, Montepulciano and Merlot grapes grown in a southerly-exposed vineyard in the Offida area. It has a clear ruby red colour and is skilfully exalted by maturing in barriques.
This wine has an intense bouquet, it is fine, fruity, flowery, ethereal, herbal and spicy with a fragrance of berries, mowed grass, hay, musk and cinnamon. It is dry, savoury, suitably tart, warm-bodied, soft, balanced, intense in taste and leaves a significantly warm velvety aftertaste.
It is suitable served with red meat, fowl and game dishes.
It is excellent with blue cheese and a perfect match for a green-peppered fillet steak.
