In the 1960s Remigio Bordini discovered a unique clone growing in Veneto, a vine clearly from the Cabernet family that also betrayed distinctive Merlot traits. Wolf and Bettina Rogosky were looking for something special to grow on their tiny 2.5ha Tuscan estate 420 meters above sea level, and this Cabernet Franc / Merlot mutation, known as Caberlot, was the perfect fit. The first plantings were made in 1985 and the first wine was made in 1988, but barely a decade later Wolf sadly died. However, his wife Bettina, their son Moritz and winemaker Peter Schilling have since ensured great success for the estate, earning Il Carnasciale a cult following.
