The grapes used for the production of the Cabernet Sauvignon are within the most renowned and loved wines: red berries coming from Bordeaux that today are spread all around the world. For years there were a discussion about where the Cabernet Sauvignon really comes from and recent studies find out that this vine is the result of the natural mixing between Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc, which is where its name comes from. The Cabernet Sauvignon is characterized by bunches with very little berry with a very thick colored peel. If cultivated in the right way it produces strong Cabernet Sauvignon that for its characteristics are perfect to be blended with Merlot grapes. The Cabernet Sauvignon grapes have a late ripening which permits its cultivation in quite hot territories.
The Cabernet Sauvignon are normally vinified in the classical barrels which permits to give to the wine a round taste and to make it more pleasant to the palate. Depending on the cultivation method the Cabernet Sauvignon could be more or less enduring, normally three or four years for the ordinary cultivation up to twenty years if the profit is minimum and the cultivation follows high qualitative level. The cultivation of the Sauvignon Cabernet is the basis to obtain a unique and refined wine. The profit can’t be very high because the production could be low quality. Also the aromas and flavors of the Cabernet Sauvignon wine depend on the cultivation territory and the maturation of the berries. The common remarkable aroma is the currant which is present in all the wines. In addition there is a vegetal aroma if the picking of the grapes is made when they are not too ripen. The typical color of the Cabernet Sauvignon is an intense ruby red color which evolves in a garnet one when aged. The high aging period of this wine makes the change of the color very slow, by reaching the garnet color after 10 years and converting it in one of the best red Italian wines on the market.
For the elevate presence of tannins in its peels the Cabernet Sauvignon has a strong and full structure with a quite high alcoholic degree which is necessary to balance its remarkable astringent side. The right cultivation of the grapes and the quality vinification allows a long aging period in bottle. In our online wine shop you can find the best Cabernet Sauvignon production with many offers.
