Fasoli Gino Cabernet Sauvignon IGT 'Igino'

Igino is the name of the founder of the Fasoli Gino Winery. This wine is dedicated to his strength and personality. One of the traditions in the Fasoli family is meeting for Sunday lunch – regardless of any other commitments. The men of the house would challenge each other to see who would have the unpleasant task of going down to the cold labyrinth of the cellars to find the wine that would be drunk over lunch. “Igino” was created as a wine for those special moments of conviviality and togetherness.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
With a deep ruby red color, this is an intense, warm and delicately tannic wine. The aromas of tobacco, coffee, and black pepper create a sensation of captivating harmony. The finish is sweet and firm at the same time, reflecting the personality of our grandfather Igino, who this wine is named after.

Fasoli Gino is the story of a family that has firm roots in the Veronese area. Farmers at heart, they have been producing wine since 1925. In 1984,  the family converted to Organic Farming and then Biodynamic in 2006. A love for the land in which they live can be felt through their enthusiasm and care for its fruits.
