    Cabernet Franc Costa Toscana IGT 2018 (BIO)

    Juicy, expressive red with a lot of varietal typicity. Fine floral notes, crunchy red stone fruits on the palate, the gripping tannin gives a lot of backbone, sweet spice and fruit flavours in the final. Delicious and of fabulous purity. SUPERIORE.DE

    "The Ampeleia 2018 Cabernet Franc is an organic wine that opens to a luminous dark-ruby appearance. The wine is made with 20% whole cluster, and the fruit is sourced from the high-elevation Vigna dell'Asina, which is characterized by local soils known as galestro and palombino with elements of schist and limestone. This wine is very true to the variety with dark fruit and blackberry, spice and a green note of grilled rosemary or wild sage." Robert Parker

    "Textbook varietal aromas and flavors of black currant, iron, olive and tobacco are joined by blackberry and Mediterranean scrub in this supple red. It firms up by the lingering aftertaste, where the black fruit persists." Wine Spectator

    "We always love this idiosyncratic cabernet franc; this year, the essence-like, primary-fruited nose comes complete with sea-urchin, iodine and oyster-shell character to add to overtones of lavender, violets and citrus. Medium-bodied, soft and fruity on the palate, yet with great depth of herbal and mineral flavors. Very tangy and acidity-driven. Wonderful to drink now." James Suckling
