Cantina Albinea Canali oers also an intense and mature tasting experience with its Cabernet Sauvignon Monteleone. The international grape variety, which prefers hilly terrain, has found noble expression in the two hectare vineyard in the Reggio Emilia Apennines. The work of the cellar’s oenologists results in a vibrant wine that’s full of energy, obtained through ageing in oak barrels for a year, which suggests a longevity to be explored.

Serving Suggestions

Cabernet Sauvignon Monteleone finds maximum expression when paired with balsamic glazed or baked meats, with stewed game and braised meats. Excellent with grilled meats, provided they are the best and most succulent cuts. Surprising with medium and aged cheeses served with preserves.
