Franco Mondo Di.Vino Monferrato Rosso 2017
Cabernet Sauvignon 70%, Barbera 30%
Valerio Mondo's rich, aromatic Monferrato red wine is an experimental blend of Barbera and a bit of Cabernet Sauvignon, coming from Valerio's estate vineyards planted in 1987 and 1995 in the village of San Marzano Oliveto.
The Cabernet Sauvignon was picked late then left to dry on special crates for one month, concentrating the sugars. After blending together and six months in oak barrels, the job is done. It's rich, structured, with intense fruit flavours and a long finish.
