Natalie's Score: 92/100

Full-bodied, savoury and meaty with a good grip on the palate of this Italian red wine. Could use cellar time and/or decanting 2 hours. Loaded with aromas and flavours of black fruit, smoke, mocha, and tanned leather. Great structure, long finish, deep satisfaction. The Cabernet grapes in this wine grow on vines planted on hillsides in Gaville, which is close to Florence, as well as in Chianciano and Montepulciano in Vino Nobile di Montepulciano. Pair with a pepper steak.

Cabernet Sauvignon food pairings: lamb Bolognese, grilled New York strip loin with chimichurri sauce, braised pork shanks with white beans, Asian chicken salad, Margherita pizza.
