Cantine Collalto - Torrai Piave Cabernet Riserva DOC 2008 - 0,75l
Warning: Last items in stock!
Collalto dedicates to this wine its most exceptional Cabernet sauvignon, Cabernet franc, and Carmenère grapes, then carefully matures the individual lots of wine, over a considerable amount of time, in the finest-quality oak barrels. The result is a dense weave of fragrant vanilla and ripe red berry fruit on the nose and a dense, complex, admirably dry palate, for a wine that will be an impressive accompaniment to any special occasion.
