Giol Cabernet Sauvignon Senza Solfiti Bio 2021

Giol Cabernet Barrique is a Bordeaux selection of Cabernet Sauvignon. Malolactic fermentation takes place in small barrels, where the wine is then aged for 8-10 months. This gives it unmistakable oak notes, which highlight the wine's characteristics rather than covering them. A deep ruby red wine that tends toward purplish. In the nose cassis aromas with hints of forest fruits and cherries. The wine softens as it ages, acquiring aromas of lavender, bay leaf, black pepper and chocolate.

  • About the vineyard

    About the vineyard Azienda Agricola Giol is located in the heart of San Polo di Piave, 35 km from Venice (Veneto) and is the oldest prosecco house from Italy (1427). The trademark of this winery is the currently uninhabited Giol Castle. Here in the cellars, under the watchful eye of young Venetian winemaker Vittorio Carraro, the wines are aged, behind meters thick walls and therefore at a constant temperature. The recent history of the castle and wine cellars goes back to the events surrounding 2 families: first the Papadopoli family and later the Giol family. The Count Papadopoli, a Venetian banker, used the castle as his summer residence, leaving Venice during those months to supervise harvests on his endless estate. In 1923, the family sold the huge estate with more than 60 annexed farms and the castle to Commander Giovanni Giol. He had just returned from South America after a very successful period of emigration. He moved into the castle and continued the work of the count. Preserving the structure and the old wine cellars, he built a second barrel room, still famous for its size and charm. After the contributions of the next three generations, the entire complex is in excellent condition and what remains is a winery producing great wines. All made from organic grapes, vegan, some without added sulfur and with relatively low alcohol percentages.
