Il Caberlot Toscana IGT 2008 - Podere Il Carnasciale (magnum, 1.5 l)

Tasting notes

"The 2008 Il Caberlot is one of the more approachable vintages of this wine I have ever tasted. Dark red fruit, grilled herbs, espresso and spices are supported by finessed, silky tannins. The 2008 shows excellent length and persistence in an understated style for this Tuscan thoroughbred. It will be interesting to see how the 2008 develops over the coming years. "

INFORMATIONS ABOUT THE ESTATE

Podere Il Carnasciale is situated in the southern Chianti mountains in the Valdarno, thirty kilometers from Siena and Arezzo, and sixty kilometers south of Florence.

The variety, or rather biotype, Caberlot, was first identified in the late 1960´s in an abandoned vineyard near Padua by the agronomist Dr. Remigio Bordini.

While the grape has the organoleptic characteristics of Cabernet Franc, its ampelographic profile however is closer to that of Merlot.

“Over the years Il Carnasciale has acquired cult status among readers who crave the finest Tuscany has to offer, and rightly so. These are some of the most unique wines from Italy.”
