Il Barone is intense in character, with the subtleties of this very special wine slowly released in layers of texture and aromas. The French barrel aging contributes the vanilla and cinnamon aromatic background, along with pronounced toasted notes. The dark fruit of the Il Barone is evocative of berries and currants. Fine grained tannins with a long finish. Full bodied, polished, and age-worthy.

Il Barone is a blend of the Castello's top high-end Cabernet Sauvignon vineyards from the best growing regions of Napa Valley. The majority of the fruit comes from the Rutherford AVA, a region famed for producing beautifully structured and complex Cabernet Sauvignon.
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.
