External Reviews for Cabernet Sauvignon
What do you get when you combine a half-century of winemaking expertise, the dramatic landscape and terroir of northern Italy, and a profound enjoyment of the good things in life? The answer is simple: the CAVIT COLLECTION, source of America’s #1 Italian wine. Through the years, savvy wine lovers have come to depend on the CAVIT COLLECTION as their favorite “go-to” source for stylish, elegant and versatile wines, perfect for any occasion. This stellar range of high-quality, food-friendly wines is produced at the Cavit winery in Trentino, a picturesque landscape of mountains, lakes, apple orchards and medieval castles. Vineyards in this region enjoy the warming effects of the "Ora del Garda," a dry, balmy breeze that sweeps across Lake Garda and protects the fruit from external moisture and disease. Contrastingly cool evenings promote rich, intense aromas and flavors in the grapes. Winemaking is overseen by Anselmo Martini, a 20+ year industry veteran and one of northern Italy’s top enologists. Production Area Grapes for this wine are harvested in the Atesino Valley in the province of Trentino, northeast Italy. Conditions here favor Cabernet, thanks to excellent sun exposure and a longer growing season. Grape Varieties 100% Cabernet Sauvignon. Vinification Immediately after harvest, grapes undergo traditional fermentation in stainless steel, followed by an aging period of 12 months in oak barrels. Color Lively ruby red Bouquet Fragrant, appealing herbaceous aromas allied with bell pepper notes Taste Medium-bodied and fresh, with well-delineated fruit, smooth tannins and a clean, graceful finish Serving Suggestions A versatile accompaniment to red meats, stews and casseroles

Diamond Series Cabernet Sauvignon 2011 - 85 points, Wine Enthusiast / Earthy aromas of black-currant leaf and crushed carnation dominate the profile of this wine, with light black-fruit notes taking second place. Lean and delicate, this wine is ready for drinking now; pair it with wine-braised brisket. Kosher.
Cabernet Sauvignon 2009 - 92 points, Rogov’s Guide to Israeli Wines 2012/ A world-class winery, regularly producing excellent wines.
/ Medium-bodied and soundly structured, this offers all of the flavor components that one would expect from 100% Cabernet: cassis, blackberry and plum skins. A solid finish with subtle tannins.
New destination rises in the Andes/ Aromas and flavors of cassis and milk chocolate, rich, ripe tannins.
The Citra family of stylishly-created Italian wines, widely admired for its enduring high quality and exceptional value, represents a reliable source of versatile, food-friendly varietal wines. As the single most important producer in Italy's picturesque coastal Abruzzi region and a leading Italian brand across America, Citra has built a reputation as a trusted producer of well-made, authentic Italian wines. The winemaking firm of Citra came into being in 1973 when 7,000 small growers scattered throughout the Abruzzi opted to band together to form a single wine cooperative. What they all shared in common was a commitment to win the national and international recognition they felt the wines of their region deserved. The fortitude, resourcefulness and conviction of the quality-minded Abruzzi growers who form Citra continue to make the Abruzzi winery a model of its kind. Production Area Grapes are harvested from hillside vineyards in the province of Chieti, in central Italy’s coastal Abruzzi region. Grape Varieties 100% Cabernet Sauvignon Vinification Hand-picked grapes are vinified employing traditional methods and macerated for 15 days at a temperature of 77°F. After decanting into stainless steel tanks, the wine spends a short period in oak barrels before bottling and release. Color Intense ruby red Bouquet Rich fruit aromas with notes of black pepper Taste Round and full on the palate, with balanced tannins and a pleasant, lingering aftertaste Alcohol 13% Serving Suggestions Enjoy with grilled meats, roast turkey, barbecue and hearty vegetarian fare.
