Cabernet

Trentino Doc

Cabernet grapes have been grown in Trentino for decades. The deep, fertile, silt loam soil is ideal for cultivating this variety.
The Avisio Hills produce a grape with a particularly rich colour and structure.
The ‘Storie di Vite’ Cabernet has a complex aroma of small red fruit and spicy notes. In the mouth, the body is full, smooth and velvety.
