Missoni Cabernet Sauvignon Terre Siciliane IGT

Sicily is a region where many grape varieties give their best. Here Cabernet Sauvignon acquires an absolutely unique personality. This wine has an excellent structure and its polyphenolic profile assures a great aging potential. The winemaking of this balanced wine is entrusted to Alessandro Cellai, who is also the winemaker and managing director of the Tuscan estates, Castellare and Rocca di Frassinello.
