In recent years Il Carnasciale’s Caberlot has emerged as one of Italy’s most distinctive and highly-sought wines. With its cult status and tiny production of roughly 1,500 magnums, it is a wine many people have heard of but few have actually tasted. The story behind Il Caberlot dates back to the 1960s, when agronomist Remigio Bordini discovered a highly unique clone growing in an old vineyard in the Veneto. The clone appeared to be a genetic mutation of Cabernet but also exhibited some qualities considered more typical of Merlot. It was the perfect choice for Wolf and Bettina Rogosky, who were looking for something different and unique to plant on their small Tuscan property. After enduring a series of setbacks, as well as much bureaucratic red tape, the first Caberlot vines were planted in 1985. To bring them good fortune the Rogoskys buried a bottle of the legendary 1985 Sassicaia below the vineyard. Sadly, Wolf Rogosky passed away in 1996, but the wine his vision helped create lives on. - Antonio Galloni

"The 2001 Caberlot is another breathtaking wine. Gorgeously seamless and pure, it reveals notes of leather, tobacco and cedar along with layers of ripe fruit that blossom on the palate. Although the 2001 displays extraordinary persistence as well as fine, noble tannins, it has also shed some its baby fat suggesting it is just beginning to enter the early part of its drinking window. It is a beautiful Caberlot that appears to be enjoyable relatively early, yet has plenty of structure to age gracefully." 94 points Antonio Galloni (Vinous Media)
