Gold Label Cabernet Franc 2015
100% Cabernet Franc
Aged for 16 months in the barrel and 12 months in the bottle
A ruby red with purplish highlights. An enveloping nose that blends typical fruity, spiced, and balsamic notes with dashes of wood. Ripe red fruit, black pepper, delicate floral hints, and thick silky tannins develop a mellow palate. The balance between fruitiness and acidity shapes a wonderful gustatory persistence.
A sensual nectar that uniquely blends the traits of La Pace and its surroundings.
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.”
