Cabernet Sauvignon Dileo – Castelvecchio’s Selections – DOC Carso
Zona di produzione
Castelvecchio is a part of the Karst (Carso) area in the province of Gorizia (Sagrado city). The landscape is typical of the Karst region: arid and rocky soil with a reduced stratum of red sand, but rich in iron and lime-stone. The area is constantly ventilated and influenced by the near sea.
100% Cabernet Sauvignon.
Harvesting and vinification
This prestigious Reserve Wine is the result of careful selection of the best grapes of Cabernet Sauvignon, from the “old vineyards” of the Castelvecchio Estate. It is a complex and full bodied wine. Ageing takes place in wooden barrels of different capacities (barriques and tonneau) for a period of at least 3 years. Cabernet Sauvignon Dileo is the best expression of an international vine variety within the favorable conditions of Karst terroir.
Color Ruby red with a violet reflection. Smell Very intense, persistent and ample. Notes of red fruits such as currants and blueberry. Evolves into spicy notes. Taste Rich and complex palate with a pleasant mineral touch typical of the Karst area. Perfect balance and remarkable persistence. The elegant tannins make it an international and long aging wine of great character.
