ABOUT COAST

Coast Cabernet Sauvignon features high-toned aromas of berry fruit, with cherry jam and earthy notes that follow. Medium bodied on the palate, Coast is a wine of balance – of cherry fruit, black tea and minty eucalyptus flavors, of fresh, bright acidity and ripe, succulent tannins. An elegant style of Cabernet that is fruity, savory and a natural match for cuisine.

 

ABOUT THE RUBICONE IGT

The Rubicone IGT (Indicazione Geografica Tipica) is an important wine region in Italy, located in the Emilia-Romagna region along the Adriatic coast. Named after the ancient river Rubicon, this IGT designation encompasses a wide area that spans across the provinces of Forlì-Cesena, Rimini, and Ravenna. The region benefits from a favorable Mediterranean climate, characterized by warm summers and mild winters, which create optimal conditions for grape cultivation. The Rubicone IGT is known for producing a diverse range of high-quality wines, including both traditional Italian varietals such as Sangiovese and Trebbiano, as well as international grapes like Merlot and Chardonnay. The wines from Rubicone often exhibit a balance of fruitiness, acidity, and structure, reflecting the region’s rich viticultural heritage and commitment to quality winemaking. With its picturesque landscapes and historical significance, the Rubicone IGT continues to be a valued contributor to Italy’s renowned wine culture, offering both locals and visitors alike a taste of its distinctive terroir and winemaking traditions.
