F&$@!!! This is great. A complex, ripe, and structured Cab Franc with herb & tobacco that can stand up to a Fiorentina steak. Heaven.

Great super Tuscan, surprised me with the higher percentage of Cab Franc, making it aggressive but a total food wine. Bring the Parmesan Cheese!!

This is a gorgeous red. Medium-full bodied with soft tannins. Acid, fruit and oak are all in balance.

2009 vintage. Didn't think I'd like this as much as I did. Very cab franc herbal but not green or lean. Beautiful fruit.

Fantastic cab franc example. Lush tannins with ripe fruits and a distinct Tuscan earthiness.

51% Cab Franc, 32% Merlot and 17% Cab Sauv. The Cab Franc really shines and the Merlot and Cab Sauv really round it out nicely. The fruit is ripe but not over ripe and there is something distinctly Tuscan about it.
