A Cabernet Sauvignon like none other... the velvet and full body of this wine comes from the great care and veronese technique applied. Who knew a Cab could bring leather, truffles and licorice to the party?

Wine Profile
Wine Profile / Tasting Notes
A unique Cabernet made with dried-out grapes. 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.

More Information
Igino was the real 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.
