Potrero Reserve Cabernet Franc 2021
It is a 100% Cabernet Franc wine, from vineyards planted in 2015 on their own estate, in Gualtallary, Uco Valley, province of Mendoza. When talking about its soils, we can see that they have a large calcareous component that helps give the wines a unique and unmatched complexity. Aging 12 months in first and second use French oak barrels.
When we tasted it, we found a deep wine, with an intense and bright violet colour. The aroma is lively, with accents of fresh and somewhat ripe fruit. In the mouth it is intense with well-blended tannins, it is an expressive, vibrant wine with pleasant persistence. The wood gave its roundness.
