Wine Notes: This is THE great Cabernet Sauvignon of Suvereto. A decade from now, we would not be surprised to see Gabbro replace Sassacaia as the ultimate Tuscan Cabernet. The wine is 100% Cabernet from older vines, some of which are 40+ years old. Fermentation occurs in 1,500-liter steel tanks. The wine ages for 18 months in French oak barrels (~60% new) and another 18 months in bottle before release.

Press (2018 Vintage): Vinous 96 points, Wine Advocate 95+ points
