Vigne Del Malina Cabernet Franc 2011

Venezia Giulia, Italy

$21.99 / each

Description:

This plummy, cocoa-scented Cabernet Franc was grown organically and biodynamically in Venezia Giulia in northern Italy and was made by an enologist who is a winemaker at Gravner, the extremely famous estate in Friuli. Rich in texture and beautifully structured, this is a wine with a real sense of gravitas, showing velvety black cherry fruit, earthy notes of lead pencil shavings and finely-grained tannins. Unfiltered and aged in old French barriques, this is a very singular, very classy wine.
