Potenti Cabernet Sauvignon Price € 35.50
Sensory features: Intense purple red colour. The nose is austere and elegant, with a wide range of aromas, redcurrant and dark fruit notes and elegant balsamic nuances. Clean and pleasantly fresh tannins in the mouth with an enjoyable presence of red fruits and balanced spiciness in the finish. Full bodied and lingering, it is vigorous and elegant. The evolution of the ageing process is steady and exponential, the years in the cellar guaranteeing its quality growth.
Grape variety: 100% Cabernet Sauvignon
In the vineyard from which Potenti originates, the balance between the clayey and gravelly fractions of the soil, together with the good slope of the land, naturally makes the best possible use of the natural water resources. And that’s not all: the sea breezes that continuously blow over this hill close to the coast balance the natural ripening process of the grapes, fostering, even at this very early stage, a unique relationship of stability between the acidic components and the ugary substances in the grapes.
The combination of these components gives the wine striking, fresh balance, notable ageing capacity and, finally, remarkable elegance and sensory originality. Harvested in October, the Cabernet sauvignon grapes are left to macerate, and then to ferment, in 10,000-litre truncated cone-shaped vats. This is followed by the ripening process in 225-litre barriques for 18 months and bottle ageing for 15 months.
