Tasting notes for Mitolo, Serpico, Cabernet Sauvignon.
Lifted peppery spice leads into an herbaceous mix of blackberries, currants and cloves. The partial Amarone method produces hints of liquorice, tar and leather whilst remaining fresh and vibrant. The youthful tannin structure will evolve over the next few years to become soft, supple and smooth.

Cellaring
Mitolo, Serpico, Cabernet Sauvignon was aged in 2-4 year old French oak for 9 months.
