Pomona 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon, Tuscany, Italy

Winemaker: Filippo Paoletti

Farming: Organic

Grapes: 100% Cabernet Sauvignon

Terroir: Limestone soils in Castellina in Chianti

Vinifiction: Harvested by hand during the first half of October. Native fermentation and maceration on the skins for 18-24 days in stainless steel.

Aging: Aged 8 months in stainless steel and then 3 months in bottle. 

Tasting Notes: Structured and brambly, this Cabernet Sauvignon brings ripe, dense fruit aromas (huckleberry, red currant, fresh black plums) while maintaining a mouth-watering level of acidity. Medium to full bodied, with structured, slightly a tannic backbone, this wine is a great pairing for grilled steaks, salty cheeses, and hearty dishes. 

Monica Raspi's family has been growing grapes and making wine in the Senese region of Chianti for over 150 years. In 2007, when Monica's mother retired from running the family winery, Monica was confronted with the idea of the family estate being sold. She couldn't bear the thought, and instead sold her own successfully veterinary clinic and took over the family winery.

Her first move was to convert the entire six-hectare property to organic farming. With the assistance of Ruggero Mazzilli, Villa Pomona's consulting agronomist and Filippo Paoletti, the consulting winemaker, Villa Pomona has become one of the area's top organic estates, producing powerful wines that are very classic in style.
