CHIETO - Cabernet e Merlot
Chieto: on our dialect is a sign of the tranquillity and the calmness typical of old wise persons, that is why we have chosen this term for our precious selection of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot: a blend with an enveloping and marvellous velvety taste.
The noble and mature inner texture of Cabernet is joined up with the elegance and velvety smoothness of Merlot, enhancing their rich and very appealing aromas and their full palates.
