Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.
Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.
Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.
Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.
100% Cabernet Sauvignon grapes from the best vineyard plots of the estate are hand harvested, within the first ten days of October, destemmed and crushed. Vinification takes places within the Nozzole cellar. Fermentation begins in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks at 28 C (82 F); a further maceration period of approximately twelve days takes place and then the wine then is racked into clean stainless steel to naturally induce a full malolactic fermentation. The wine is aged 16-18 months in French oak barrels part new and part one year old and is then followed by a minumum of 6 months in bottle before release.
"Beautiful aromas of crushed blackberry and currant, with intense cassis character. Full-bodied, with supersilky tannins and amazing pure fruit. Lasts for minutes. The best Pareto in a long time. Cabernet Sauvignon. Best after 2011. 1,665 cases made."
"The 2006 Il Pareto (Cabernet Sauvignon) reveals a dark core of fruit framed by firm, yet well-balanced tannins. The aromas and flavors aren’t especially varietally expressive, but the Cabernet character comes through in the wine’s textural weight. Menthol, tar, licorice and spices come to life on the long, vibrant finish. This masculine, powerful wine needs a few years of bottle age, but is undoubtedly a very fine effort. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2021.
The Wine Advocate
The Nozzole estate produces a Chianti Classico Riserva and a single-vineyard wine from the superb "La Forra" parcel. Cabernet Sauvignon, cultivated principally in another parcel of the estate planted in 1981 called "Il Pareto," yields a pure Cabernet wine first produced in the 1987 vintage. The principal white vineyards of the Nozzole estate, the "Le Bruniche" and "Casa Vecchia" vineyards, once planted in Trebbiano Toscano and Malvasia, were replanted to Chardonnay in the early 1980s. These vineyards now produce Nozzole Le Bruniche, a distinctive, pure varietal Chardonnay.
One of the most important wine regions in Italy, Tuscany is home to the cities of Florence and Siena, the districts of Chianti and Brunello di Montalcino, and the wineries of Sassicaia, Tignanello and Ornellaia. Tuscany is also home to the indigenous Italian grape variety, Sangiovese. Most of the wine coming from Tuscany is made from some clone of this...Read More About Tuscany
(cab-uhr-NAY sow-veeh-yawn) King of Red Many refer to Cabernet Sauvignon as the king of red grapes. Perhaps that title is due to its ability to grow worldwide in a number of climates, or to the fact that it produces wine with such character yet such diversity. Either way, this grape is responsible, as a whole or a partner, for some of the greatest wines in the world. In Bordeaux,...Read More About Cabernet Sauvignon
