Quattro's powerful, structured tannins are backed by hints of blackberry, cassis and leather.
The vineyards utilized for this unique Cabernet are Gerlach Hammond, Perata, Rocca, and Villa Amorosa; vineyards typically used in the final blends of our Il Barone Cabernet Sauvignon and La Castellana Super Tuscan Blend.
Quattro is the result of the winemaker's instinct, quick thinking, and a little bit of luck. On October 15, 2012, after harvesting Cabernet Sauvignon from 4 of the Castello's top vineyards, a small quantity from each was left over due to the 4 intended fermentation vessels coming full. Knowing that the fruit was all of great quality, he decided to ferment the leftovers together in a single small tank. Upon tasting the wine just as the fermentation was finishing up, we knew something special had occurred, and we proclaimed that the "Quattro" warranted a unique bottling. No blending has been done with this wine since that fateful day the grapes were plucked from the 4 distinct vineyard sites from across the Napa Valley.
Food Pairing Notes
This bold single vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon pairs perfectly with filet mignon.
The brainchild of Winemaker Peter Velleno. Who was in the prime time of Harvest when his tank space began to run low. As a few premium lots of grapes still needed to go into the tank, he decided to put Cabernet Sauvignon grapes from 4 different vineyards together in a single tank, alittle experimentation if you will. 2 Years later the Quattro was tasted to the delight of everyone. Now the Quattro is a regular occurance at the Castello mixing some of the top grapes in all of Napa Valley.
