Cantina Gabriele Dolcemente Rosso 2019
Dolcemente's secret is the blend of the refined character of the Cabernet Sauvignon with the fruitiness of the Cesanese grape. Intense purple color, fresh floral aromas with notes of berry and cherry, very smooth tannins, and lovely sweetness on the palate makes you want to enjoy this wine at room temperature or slightly chilled.
In the midst of the XIXth century in Pantelleria - a little island in the south of Italy - Andrea I Pandolfo, great-grand father of the present owner Gabriele, began to produce wines based on the specie of Zibibbo grapes. In 1880, Andrea I sold the small vineyards in the island and bought 150 acres of virgin land in the north of Tunisia - precisely at Khanguet Gare, in the region of Cape Bon. There were planted and picked the first grapes then, in the early years of the XXth century, Andrea I and his son Giovanni began to produce quality wines in their family cellar. Such a good wine that from the port of Tunis departed full-loaded cargos to serve the best markets of France.
