Cabernet Franc



The wine that represents terroir and grape varieties with exquisite floral and fruity aromas.

A more complex, full-bodied wine made from the finest Cabernet Franc grapes from selected and tested vineyards on terraces. The Cabernet Franc clones are from the old vineyards of the Constantini estate.

A wine for special occasions, with an excellent structure. Part of the naturally dried, selected Cabernet Franc grapes. A slightly exotic Cabernet Franc that ripens only in the most favourable vintages.

The label is made from the highest quality materials.

Description: Intense and deep ruby red colour. With longer maturing, it takes on ruby red to brick hues. A noble and intense bouquet. Balsamic notes of ripe fruit, violets, coconut, cherries in liqueur, liquorice, toast, ‘goudron’, all elegantly enriched with soft spiciness. It is dry and soft in the mouth at the same time, enveloping and perfectly balanced thanks to the harmony between acids and tannins. The tasting is enlivened by a very pleasant tannic texture, minerality and persistence. The wine is full, elegant, and pleasantly fresh. Long and noble aftertaste.

Great potential for bottle maturing.
