Rosati Family Winery


Cabernet Sauvignon


Our 2009 is an aromatic, elegant and complex wine with a dark, ruby red color. The wine has lifted aromas of fresh and intense black cherries, integrated with subtle undertones of roasted coffee and dark chocolate. In the mouth, the black fruits are rich and expressive, with oak quietly integrated; it owns a sense of power and harmony between its aromatics and palate. It is young, beautifully balanced, and delicious. Serve with Pork Stew with Sweet & Hot Peppers from the Abruzzo.
