This wine has a dual personality: complex and deep, revealing hints of red fruits like black currant, strawberry and raspberry. Fine and elegant, it has all the characteristics of the grape and our terroir. We like to drink it slowly, because it changes every time, glass after glass, all the evening and the following day too.


Tasting Notes

This wine speaks of la dolce vita - generous hospitality and the natural style of central Italian life. If you associate single varietal Cabernet Franc with the lighter red wines of the Loire, think again. This is a far cry from the charcoal and green pepper- laden wines of Western France, a wine of an altogether different hue. The first indication of this difference is the big, glycerine teardrops as you swill the wine around your glass. Deft use of oak gives secondary aromas of roasted meat and earthy cedar, mingled with rosemary and sweet cloves. Great globules of rich, viscous fruit fill your mouth, bursting with flavours of warm cassis and Morello cherry. The full, rounded tannins give the wine welcome grip on the palate, supporting the long, persistent finish, leaving an elegant savouriness and more of those secondary meaty notes to enjoy. Drink with roasted topside of beef or haunch of venison, with roast root vegetables and a meaty jus. 15% alc. Drink now – 2021
