Cabernet Sauvignon Cabernet Sauvignon is a grape variety from Bordeaux, found in the areas of Médoc and Graves. It is certainly one of the more well-known varieties in the world and is used to produce top-quality wines with good ageing potential. The grape variety is often used in a blend with Cabernet Franc and Merlot (Bordeaux blend), which takes its name from Bordeaux, where it was originally introduced. In Italy, Cabernet Sauvignon is used in many ways, both as a monovarietal and with other red grapes. The variety is able to adapt to very different climatic conditions and vinification techniques, although it maintains its distinctive characteristics, which make it easily identifiable, although it perfectly expresses also the terroir in which it is grown. It produces concentrated wines, even in terms of colour, which are tannin-rich and feature a spectrum of aromatics and good ageing potential. Thanks to the excellent structure of this grape variety, long macerations and oaking, especially in French oak, can be ventured, as over time it yields a layered and alluring bouquet. It has medium-sized, five-lobed leaves with dentate edges. The grape bunch is medium to small-sized, with an elongated, pyramid-cylinder shape and features a well-packed bunch, often with wings. Berries are medium-sized, almost round in shape, with a very thick blue-black skin with purplish nuances, and are covered in bloom.
