The age of the vineyard, the very low yield per hectare, equal to 70 quintals / Ha and the over-ripening give the grapes exceptional quality characteristics, which are reflected in this great red wine. The long rest in small oak barrels and aging for years in the bottle allow this Cabernet Sauvignon Garda to improve and become an excellent red, the most important and most awarded of the Avanzi house.
