Additional Information on Torre Fornello Cabernet Sauvignon 2006

Winery: Torre Fornello

Varietal: Cabernet Sauvignon

From the valleys of California and Chile to the rolling hillsides of the Bordeaux region of France, the one red wine grape varietal you will find in abundance is the Cabernet Sauvignon. This darkly colored grape has been cultivated since the mid 18th century, when it was borne from a cross of fine Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc varietals. Since then, it has spread around the world and has been received with pleasure by wineries looking for a varietal which delivers excellence of flavor and aroma, whilst being hardy enough to resist frost and rot and other such difficulties. Indeed, Cabernet Sauvignon is probably the most recognizable red wine grape varietal on earth, and is easily distinguished by its high tannin level and acidic nature, which is often so beautifully mellowed by being blended with Merlot and other such grapes.

Region: Emilia-Romagna

Emilia-Romagna in northern Italy has been considered one of Europe's most important and characterful wine regions for an astonishingly long time. Indeed, for over two and half thousand years, vines of exceedingly high quality have been cultivated in Emilia-Romagna, with many of the region's wines being adored by the Romans, who helped the region grow prosperous as a result of its viticultural excellence. Today, Emilia-Romagna has over fifty five thousand hectares under vine, and no less than twenty-two DOC's producing stunning wines, containing all of the unique flavors and attributes associated with the region. By far the most famous wines of Emilia-Romagna are the sparkling Lambrusco wines, however, the region is widely recognized as being home to many of Italy's finest still red and white wines, too.

Country: Italy

For several decades in the mid to late twentieth century, Italy's reputation for quality wines took a fairly serious blow. This was brought about partly due to lack of regulation in certain regions, and too much regulation in others. This led to several wineries in the beautiful and highly fertile region of Tuscany making the bold move to work outside of the law, which they saw as responsible for the drop in quality in Tuscan wines. They believed that they had the expertise and the generations of experience necessary with which to make truly excellent, world class wines, and set about doing just that. These 'Super Tuscans', as they came to be known, quickly inspired the rest of Italy to improve their produce, and now, Italian wine producers in the twenty-first century are widely recognised to be amongst the best in the world. Regulation and law began to change, and wine drinkers across the globe woke up to the outstanding wines coming out of Italy, which are continuing to improve and impress to this day.
