Il Caberlot

My first tasting of the wines of Podere Il Carnasciale made from the infamous grape variety Caberlot. This is believed to be a natural cross between Cabernet Franc and Merlot. The variety was found in an abandoned vineyard in the late 1960's. Podere Il Carnasciale is situated in the southern Chianti mountains in the Valdarno region of Tuscany. This variety is only grown at this estate, an estate that planted it's first vineyard in 1986. Il Caberlot is only bottled in magnums and double magnums and the production is tiny.
