Cabernet
cabernet-sauvignon
The Cabernet varieties have been right at home in Alto Adige/Südtirol for around 150 years. As a result of a consistent reduction in yields, the Cabernet of today demonstrates aromas of black currants, blackberries, and spice. A hint of black pepper contributes to its complexity. Thanks to its dense structure, Cabernet is among the most age-worthy red wines in Alto Adige.
