Il Carnasciale Il Caberlot 2016 (1500ml)


In Stock

“The 2016 Il Caberlot (Magnum) is a knock-out. Rich, ample and expansive, with superb intensity, the 2016 has so much to offer. A rush of red cherry jam, wild herbs, mocha, rose petal, mint and blood orange builds in a towering, explosive Caberlot that captures all of the personality of this unique Merlot/Cabernet Franc hybrid. Deep, plush and beautifully resonant, the 2016 is a total stunner. It is also one of the very finest vintages I have ever tasted here. In a word: magnificent! Drinking window: 2022-2041. 97 points

The Rogosky family has made compelling wines at Il Carnasciale pretty much since the beginning, but the flagship Caberlot is truly sensational in 2016. Il Carnasicale’s unique Cabernet Franc/Merlot hybrid yields a wine of rare aromatic and flavor intensity that reaches a stunning peak of expression in 2016. Readers should also be on the lookout for Ottantadue, the estate’s new Sangiovese.”
