Marchese di Villamarina Cabernet Sauvignon DOC – Sella & Mosca Winery.
One of the great Italian reds, a benchmark among Bordeaux-style wines and feather in the cap of the Sella & Mosca project. Made from cabernet sauvignon grapes grown on strong, iron-bearing clay that an ancient geological upheaval mixed with windborne sands.
A terroir that shapes and influences the varietals in a Mediterranean key, making the wine unique and captivating. After the harvest, the grapes ferment for an extended period on the skins, after which the wine is aged in barriques for about 14 months.
After bottling, Marchese di Villamarina is cellared for another 18 months. With a saturated ruby red color and purple highlights, it is enveloped by ample, very intense aromas, defined by notes of black cherry and blackcurrants, tobacco and spice.
To the palate, it is rhythmic and silky, with depth and structure that its good acidity keeps in formidable balance. The finish is warm and seductive, exceptionally persistent.
