Cosmino was born as a blend of Cabernet sauvignon and Cabernet franc, with grapes from a single vineyard, modeled on a splendid terrace. With the 2015 harvest a decision to enhance Cabernet Franc was made, a grape variety that is sometimes difficult to interpret but which is capable of molding itself to the terroir and of surprising us with wines of great personality. Cosmino is currently a pure Cabernet Franc, a cru of excellence.

Cosmino is the result of meticulous work in the vineyard and a selection of Cabernet franc grapes.
Bright ruby color, with a complex olfactory bouquet where small berries, such as blackberries and raspberries, blend with hints of cedar and graphite to finish with elegant herbaceous and spicy tones that are enhanced in the cooler vintages.
On the palate, intense and elegant, energetic in the austere tannic texture that helps the tasting, with a progression towards a finale of great pleasantness and persistence.
It goes perfectly with red meats and is excellent with stews, first courses with rich sauces, or with mushroom-based dishes.
