DURIGUTTI cabernet franc 2015
about the wine
over the past six years hector and pablo have been producing the most consistently high scoring cabernet franc in argentina
this bottling comes from old vines in la consulta and agrelo – both vineyards used have terrific exposure to the delight of those who prefer a more forward style of cabernet franc – think layers of peppery blue fruit and zero “green” flavors. tasting notes
this is very floral and inviting on the nose with notes of rosemary, violets, lavender, citrus, orange peel and boysenberries, as well as lots of spicy undertones. full-bodied and really seductive with tightly-wound, grainy tannins, vibrant acidity and a long, succulent finish. drink in 2021. -james suckling
about the producer
hector and pablo were born in mendoza, the cradle of wine and were raised together. their childhood and their home were always connected to a sensorial world, with aromas, ingredients, and flavors that, over time, motivated them to choose the path to become enologists. as adults, they would find these familiar memories and similar passions. since 2002 they have been dedicated to their project as a small family winery. today the brothers have evolved to form the new generation of winemakers, leading an evolutionary change in argentina’s viticulture. with that same spirit, the durigutti brothers craft their wines and have started to write their own history, a family legacy, in a chosen place where they live and work daily with dedication.
