Planeta Carbenet Sauvignon Burdese 2006

Planeta Carbenet Sauvignon Burdese 750ML 2006   
Sku: 8842

Menfi, Sicily, Italy Burdese pays tribute to the traditional Bordeaux blend as the name Burdese means “from Bordeaux” in the Sicilian dialect.

Tasting notes
Color - Deep ruby red Bouquet - Rich and concentrated. Aromas of wild berries mingle with scents of macerated black cherries, leather, earth, cacao and mineral notes Taste - Full-bodied, vibrant and concentrated, with a remarkably deep and dense tannic structure, yet elegant; aromas carry through to the palate, where they combine with spicy and balsamic notes

Wine maker notes
Grapes are de-stemmed and crushed, then macerate on the skins for 15-18 days. Fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks at 82F. After racking, the wine matures in new French oak Allier barrels for 14 months, undergoing malolactic fermentation in barrel. Once bottled, the wine matures 12 months before release.

Technical notes
70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Cabernet Franc

Food pairing
Enjoy with hearty beef stew and potatoes, grilled tuna steaks or roast fillet in a wine sauce.
