Antucura

Antucura SV 'Tani' Cabernet Franc 2015

93 pts Descorchados

Tasting Notes



VEGAN FRIENDLY!

In view we appreciate an intense and bright red color. The nose offers green bell pepper and red fruits aromas, well balanced with oak. In the mouth, it has a soft entry, is structured and balanced with mature tannins, and presents a good volume.

Awards, Reviews and other Notes

93 pts Descorchados

91 pts Tanzer/Vinous
Bright dark red. Lively aromas of blackberry, licorice and violet accented by a sexy peppery element. A touch herbal but quite subtle on the palate, showing a darker fruit character than the Cabernet Sauvignon. Lovely finesse of texture here--and the herbacity ultimately fades nicely into the wine’s fruit. Tightly wound in the early going but suave and persistent.

Winemaker Notes

Vines per hectare: 5.500 (high density). Height of the vineyard: 1.050 mts. above sea level. Soil: Limestone, alluvial origin with gravel in the subsoil, originating from a very rocky soil. Climate: Continental with low average rainfall (200 mm. per year). Manual, in 18 Kg plastic bins. Production: Double selection of the grapes, fermentation at 24º-28ºC, in 100-150hl inox tanks, maceration up to 30-45 days, depending on tastings and natural malolactic fermentation. he Tani vineyard was chosen for its deep loamy soil and low plant vigor with an excellent sun exposure for the Cabernet Franc. Each plant is carefully monitored with drip irrigation to give us the maximum fruit and structure. We limit the number of bunches per plant to achieve an intensity of fruit couple with an exotic floral bouquet finishing with silky tannins, a complex finish with peppery notes.
