Gold Label Cabernet Franc 2015
Aged for 16 months in barriques and 12 months in the bottle
Ripe red fruit and dashes of wood play the accompaniment for a vegetal duet of spices and balsam. Floral hints further adorn the sip’s long aromatic carousel. Silky tannins and vivid acidity blend varietal traits into those of La Pace’s surrounding territory.
A sensual nectar that exudes suave elegance.
One black glass awarded in the 2019 edition.
Score: 16/20. “Harmonious notes of black cherries, underwood and herbs to the nose. It is smooth on the palate, combining robust tannins with fullness and character; the finale exhibits lingering fruity notes.”
“A decadent nose showing blackberry pie, elderberry compote, kirsch, plum liqueur and plenty of vanilla and cloves. Full body, very chewy tannins, a driven line of acidity and a long, very spicy finish. Drink in 2024.”
The Merano WineFestival, a prestigious international wine organization, awarded the Excellence Mark (88.00-89.99/100 points) to our 2015 Gold Label Cabernet Franc among 5,000 wines for “the high quality expressing pleasantness, elegance and a harmonious interplay.”
