Il Cucchetto

85% Cabernet Sauvignon e 15% Petit Verdot  - Alcohol 14,5%
The Cucchetto is the wine that interprets the noble Cabernet Sauvignon grape in a Maremma key, with the addition of a portion of Petit Verdot which gives it that extra touch in terms of aromas and spicy sensations.
The particular composition of our soil combined with an ideal exposure of the vines means that this vigorous sample does not miss even a year.
