DOUBLE BARREL

ADD TO RESERVATIONS

Bypassing traditional cellaring methods, and preserving the character of our winemaker’s style, we aged the entire wine for one year in American oak barrels and subsequently transferred the lot into French oak barrels for a total of sixteen months of oak integration – a “DOUBLE BARREL” treatment.

DOUBLE BARREL is a blend of estate grown Cabernet Severnyi and Sangiovese grapes.

This premium wine is liquid history.

Service temperature: 20°C
