Why we love it
A beautiful Cabernet Sauvignon made from grapes from a single vineyard located in hills behind Pescara, and aged in barriques for about a year to add complexity and flavours still preserving the characteristics of the grape.
This is a lively and aromatic Cabernet Sauvignon with a spicy nose, a typical Cabernet Sauvignon nose, fruity and smooth on the palate with soft tannins. This Cabernet Sauvignon pairs perfectly with charcuterie or sausages.
This wine is only produced in about 3000 bottles per vintage
The artisan who made it
Nestled in the Abruzzo hills, facing the Adriatic sea, is the small town of Miglianico, is located the Ciavolich winery. Founded in the late 1950's, the Ciavolich winery is now jointly run by wife and husband Chiara and Gianluca. Abruzzo is largely known for the Montepulciano d’Abruzzo and Trebbiano d'Abruzzo, but they also grow native grapes such as Cococciola and Passerina, only found in the oldest wineries and in very small quantity.
