Castello di Volpaia ‘Prelius’ Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

$18.75

Each and every year we feature the inimitable wines of Castello di Volpaia. Even so, as the scores explode our allotment erodes. Last November, we snuck out 20 cases of Wine Spectator’s highest rated Chianti Classico in the history of the publication – Castello di Volpaia’s 2016 – on a sleepy afternoon. 

Earlier this year, we had a bit more of the 2017 Chianti Classic to go around BUT we had to offer it prior to the reviews being released. Even so, it too, was gone within a few hours.

Now – Castello di Volpaia has done it again with the ultimate Tuesday nighter Cabernet. Drawn from a steep hillside in Maremma overlooking the ancient (now non-existent) Lake Prelius – Castello di Volpaia’s Cabernet is out of this world especially for under $20!

Expert Reviews

92 Points, James Suckling
Blueberry and currant character with a hint of vanilla. Medium to full body. Chewy tannins and a flavorful finish. Needs time to soften.

91 Points, Wine Enthusiast
Made with organically grown grapes, this Cabernet Sauvignon opens with inviting aromas of cassis, underbrush and mint. The savory, polished palate features black currant, licorice and tobacco alongside fine-grained tannins. Drink through 2026.
