A elegant old world style wine. Floral and savory notes develop nicely in the bouquet, plum and sweet dark cherries, cedar and earthy undertones show brightly with a strong tanin backbone, which will soften with age. A long, beautifully delineated finish laced with bright floral notes completes it. Infinitely food friendly. Capable of and will benefit from long-term aging.
Il Barone is a very flavorful, elegant and structured red wine in the style of high-quality, very limited-production, fine Cabernet Sauvignon wines from the Napa Valley. Excellent long-term ageing potential.
Food Pairing Notes
Pair with foods as bold as the wine, such as roast game meats, grass-fed steak, or grilled portabello mushrooms with reduced balsamic vinegar glaze.
