Description

Friuli Isonzo Cabernet 2017 Raccaro

Variety: Cabernet Franc 60% Cabernet Sauvignon 35% and Merlot 5%

Ruby red color.

The nose has intense and well-defined varietal aromas. We distinguish the pepper, the green grass, and the undergrowth, with all its many facets, then of fruit with ripe cherry and blackberry. There is no shortage of spicy notes of juniper, and green pepper and toasted ones with an unlit fireplace and tobacco. Among the most varietal ones, and others from evolution, they are all together fascinating and inviting.

On the palate it is in a wonderful balance between hardness and softness. The warm vintage gives excellent volume and the skill of the winemaker, together with freshness, lively tannins and well-perceived minerality. It wraps the mouth with class and elegance, and leaves a pleasant and persistent memory. The aromas are of vegetable notes, blueberry and spices.

The sum of the three aspects gives us a well-made Cabernet, capable of distinguishing itself, like the whites, among all the Friulian red wines. Raccaro is considered, by the most expert and selective critics, to be one of the best in all of Friuli.

Friuli Isonzo Cabernet 2017 Raccaro
