Il Caberlot, Toscana IGT, Il Carnasciale 150cl MAGNUM








Tootekood: 1988 Kategooria:


Wolf ja Bettina Rogosky ostsid 1972. aastal Chianti mägedesse väikese majakese koos oliivipuudega. 1985. aasta öökülmad aga hävitasid kahjuks täielikult nende oliivipuud. Agronoomist sõber soovitas neil oliivipuude asemele hoopis istutada 0.3 hektarit veinipuid aga mitte mõnda tavalist marjasorti, vaid ainulaadset Caberlot nimelist marjasorti, mille ta ise 1960ndatel oli esmakordselt avastanud ühest Veneto mahajäetud veiniaiast. Caberlot’i peetakse Cabernet Franc’i ja Merlot looduslikuks ristandiks. Tänaseni on Il Carnasciale veinimaja 2 hektari suurune Caberlot’i veiniaed ainuke maailmas, kus see viinamarjasort kasvab.

“Over the years Il Carnasciale has acquired cult status among readers who crave the finest Tuscany has to offer, and rightly so. These are some of the most unique wines from Italy.” – Antonio Galloni

“Since the first vintage of Il Caberlot was released in 1988, the wine has achieved a sort of cult status. It is not just the rarity and minuscule production quantities that drive this appreciation, however, but the extreme care, attention to detail, and pursuit of quality that imbues each aspect of production. Work in the vineyards is particularly gentle, with minimal intervention, and employing entirely manual labour. Pruning, budding and leaf-management are carried out by hand. No chemical fertilizers or pesticides are used.” – Wine Advocate

Il Caberloti tehakse ainult magnum formaadis. Vein laagerdub 22 kuud Prantsuse tammevaatides, millest 75% on uued vaadid (keskmise röstiga). Seejärel puhkab vein enne müügile tulekut veel 18 kuud veinimõisas. Aastane toodang on 3,000 magnumit. Kõik pudelid pudeldatakse ja nummerdatakse käsitsi.

“The 2015 Il Caberlot opens with a blast of blackberry jam, chocolate, licorice and spice. Exotic and deep, with tremendous character, the 2015 delivers serious flavor intensity while remaining light on its feet for such a powerful wine. The combination of textural resonance and finesse is striking in the 2015. Bottled only in magnum.”  Antonio Galloni 96 points

“Shows a really distinctive herbal edge of blackberry leaves, charcoal and black peppers. Iodine and crushed-stone undertones in addition to vivid blackcurrants. Full-bodied, very linear and well defined with a firm tannin backbone, driven acidity and a mineral, chewy finish.” James Suckling 96 points

“Made with the elusive Caberlot grape, the 2015 Il Caberlot (with only 3,100 Magnums produced) is a beautifully ripe, dense and rich expression from one of the most beautiful spots in Tuscany. The grapes are fermented in stainless steel and undergo malolactic fermentation in barrique, before a 22-month aging period in small French oak (of which 75% is new). The wine is impeccably balanced and concentrated with dark, plummy fruit, spice, tar and savory tobacco. Caberlot is a distant relative of Cabernet, and you can tell as much as you contemplate the bouquet and full-bodied appearance of the mouthfeel of this warm vintage Tuscan red. Drink 2020-2035.” Wine Advocate 95+ points
