Montes Alpha Special Cuvée Cabernet Sauvignon is a new milestone that came to life as a result of the self-imposed challenge set by the team of viticulturists and winemakers of the winery, headed by Aurelio Montes, to elevate quality, crafting a new generation of wines superior to Montes Alpha.

Ageing: 65% of the wine was aged for 12 months in first, second, and third-use French oak barrels.

Tasting Notes:
Potent aromas of ripe fruits such as blackberries, blueberries, and plums. The palate is very well balanced with ripe tannins, generous volume, and a long, persistent finish.

Food Pairing:
Highly recommended with red meats, stir-fried beef, spaghetti with Bolognese sauce, pork chops with Cabernet-mushroom sauce

The Grape
The most famous red wine grape in the world and one of the most widely planted.

It is adaptable to a wide range of soils, although it performs particularly well on well-drained, low-fertile soils. It has small, dusty, black-blue berries with thick skins that produce deeply coloured, full-bodied wines with notable tannins. Its spiritual home is the Médoc and Graves regions of Bordeaux where it thrives on the well-drained gravel-rich soils producing tannic wines with piercing blackcurrant fruits that develop complex cedarwood and cigar box nuances when fully mature.

The grape is widely planted in California where Cabernet Sauvignon based wines are distinguished by their rich mixture of cassis, mint, eucalyptus and vanilla oak. It is planted across Australia and with particular success in Coonawarra where it is suited to the famed Terra Rossa soil. In Italy barrique aged Cabernet Sauvignon is a key component in Super Tuscans such as Tignanello and Sassicaia, either on its own or as part of a blend with Sangiovese.
