Our Intesa is a harmonious blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Barbera. Rich red fruit aromas emulate sweet cherry preserves, strawberry jam, and pomegranate. These notes are complemented by savory spice notes including black pepper, cardamom, and a touch of vanilla, framed by toasty notes of brioche. Smooth texture, velvety tannins, and succulent acidity titillate the palate.
The word “Intesa” roughly translates to a “friendly agreement,” which represents the harmony within this blend. This vintage combines 49% Cabernet Sauvignon, 48% Barbera, and 3% Merlot and was aged in 69% new oak, 100% French, for 21 months.
