Baglio di Stefano Cabernet

Cabernet Sauvignon

Sicily

13 Alcohol

Introduction

Did you know that Sicily actually has more vineyards than any other Italian wine region? Most of the grapes grown on the Italian island are harvested for Marsala, Italy's fortified wine. Sicily is most known for the indigenous red varietal, Nero d'Avola, but you can find many international varietals too. Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay are becoming more and more prevalent. Terre Siciliane is an IGT designation that can apply to any wine that is produced in Sicily. The designation was created in 2011, when the former Sicilia IGT was promoted to DOC status. Terre Siciliane directly translates to 'Sicilian lands'. The Baglio Stefano Cabernet Sauvignon is an exclusive offering from WineCollective. Only 56 cases were imported into Canada and WineCollective members are the only ones to receive it. Great to open today, but can also be cellared another year. Chill slightly to 17C before serving.


How it looks

Bold red, with an almost opaque core and cherry-hued edges.

How it smells

Bright bing cherry transitions to a richer and deeper black cherry. We find all the pieces of a deconstructed black forest cake, with cocoa powder, chocolate shavings, raspberry jam and marinated cherries.

How it tastes

Effortless and easy from the first sip. Medium bodied, soft texture with lightly sticky tannin that give just enough grip to give the wine more presence. Cherries stay consistent from the front of the palate, all the way through to the finish. Bitter cherry pip or stem adds more dimension. Surprisingly fresh acidity that makes this a super food-friendly wine.

Recommended food pairing

This is a solid 'house wine' for pizza and pasta night, and pretty much everything in between!
