Federico II Cabernet Sauvignon: A Royal Legacy in a Bottle

In the world of fine wines, few embody a legacy as rich as the Federico II Cabernet Sauvignon. This exquisite wine, distributed by Wine Affairs in the Upper West Side of Manhattan, is more than just a beverage; it's a tribute to history, culture, and the art of winemaking.

Emperor Federico II, known for his might in battle, authority in culture, and incredible foresight, is the inspiration behind this wine. The Federico II Cabernet Sauvignon is a perfect synthesis of these noble qualities, captured in the essence of a single grape variety that holds the secret of a grand land. This land, kissed by two seas, mirrors the Mediterranean itself.

With the Indicazione Geografica Protetta (Protected Geographical Indication) from Calabria, this wine is made from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon grapes. The vineyards, situated at an altitude of 500 meters above sea level with a southern exposure, feature heavy, organically poor, and highly alkaline soils. The grapes are cultivated using the spurred cordon training system, ensuring optimal growth and quality.

The vinification process is traditional yet refined. The grapes, harvested at their peak maturity, undergo intensive maceration and traditional red wine fermentation. The wine is then aged in 50-hectoliter French oak barrels, where it undergoes malolactic fermentation and matures for 18 to 24 months.

The organoleptic characteristics of Federico II Cabernet Sauvignon are remarkable. It presents a bold garnet color and an intense, broad aroma with hints of plums, cherries, and blackberries, beautifully integrated with the French oak. On the palate, it reveals the fullness of the fruit, boasting excellent density, balance, and a velvety texture. With a substantial body and superior persistence, this wine is a true testament to elegance and complexity.
