FINE RED WINE, by the bottle

Cortaccio, Villa Carfaggio, Tuscany. Italy, 2005 B. 70

Old vine Tuscan red! The Cabernet Sauvignon grapes are the last to be picked on the estate, at the very peak of maturity.

The Villa Cafaggio Cortaccio is a wine of extraordinary quality with a garnet colour, an intense aroma reminiscent of blackcurrants and a perfectly blended roasted character. The palate is concentrated, with extremely well balanced tannins and the finish is immense
