Fancy a KNOCKOUT bottle of Cabernet Franc from the warms hills of Tuscany? Wine Spectator flipped for this example: "A dense profile emerges as this red goes from cherry and black currant fruit to iron, cedar, earth and spicy oak flavors. Muscular tannins guard the lingering, persistent finish. Youthful and exuberant." Take a trip to "The Big Slope!"

Wine Advocate

The 2015 Campo di Magnacosta is more subdued in terms of its aromatic intensity compared to the other two wines in this series of single-vineyard Cabernet Francs. The wine shows an elegant finish that is measured more in terms of length and persistence than power and bulk. There is grace here and you taste it in the subtle way those black fruit flavors are folded within darker tones of spice, tar and cured leather. The texture is already silky to touch, and I would image that it will become even more so with time.
