The Cabernet IGT by Di Lenardo appears in the glass in a dark burgundy with ruby red shimmer. This red wine cuvée unfolds the wonderful aromas of elderberries, roses and peppers with a delicate tone of bitter almonds.
This red wine enchants the palate with soft tannins, as well as with a pleasant acidity and fruitiness. With age, this Cabernet becomes more intense and rich.
