Arlewood Villaggio Rosso 2017
Out of Stock
The Villaggio red is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from the Estate vineyard in Forest Grove. The Villaggio range is a salute to the European ‘Village’ wines that offer tremendous value for money. A wine for weeknights, long table dinners and when friends drop by.
The nose displays a mix of red and black fruits – blackcurrant and cherry ripe with underlying licorice allsorts.
A fruit forward Cabernet Sauvignon that exposes fine tannins, black fruit -blackberry, blackcurrant and olive savouriness. The flavors are well supported by toasty, seasoned French oak characters and savory complexity.
