2014 Lovo Veneto Italy Cabernet Sauvignon

From the winery: "Remarkably bright and clean, with a zestiness reminiscent of Cab Franc – perfect for light meats off the grill. This is a great substitute for a white on a warm summer’s day. Pair it with creamy cheeses, cold cuts and prosciutto and lightly roasted meats with fresh herbs."
