Description

The Giol Cabernet Barrique is a Bordeaux selection of Cabernet Sauvignon.

Malolactic fermentation takes place in small casks, where the wine subsequently ages for 8-10 months. This enables it to acquire unmistakable oak tones, which underscore the characteristics of the wine rather than covering them.

A deep ruby red wine tending to purplish. Slightly grassy nose with raspberry aromas when young; vinous with hints of forest fruits and cherry. Softens out with ageing, acquiring aromas of violet, Eastern spices, black pepper, cocoa powder and tobacco.

Pairs with haute-cuisine meat dishes, charcoal-grilled meats, red and white roast meats, fancy poultry and game, mature cheeses.
