This 100% Cabernet Franc is from one of the very best areas in the Uco Valley where it is predominantly clay and sand soil. After hand picking the grapes in early April, the wine went into traditional French oak barrels for 18 months.
The winemaker Attilio Pagli has produced a wine that is to be savoured, it is smooth and has a lovely long finish to it. Enjoy.
