Here's a Cabernet Franc for advanced learners. The Wine Advocate called it a "dark, moody and penetrating wine...enormously rich and opulent, this is perhaps the softest and most supple of the three expressions. It is also the most defined by its mineral identity. The bouquet reveals distinctive characteristics of flint, crushed mineral and dry chalk. This adds to the dryness and the overall intensity of the wine. In the mouth, however, it shows savory and rich succulence." Pick up a few bottles to lay in for a 5-10 year rest!
Here is another beautiful Cabernet Franc from Tenuta di Trinoro, from a parcel characterized by sandier soils with rocks. The 2016 Campo di Tenaglia has remarkable intensity and a lovely richness. It has a soothing dark spiciness but remains very compact at its core. After eight months in new barrique, it goes into cement to rest and integrate for an additional 11 months. Only 1,900 bottles were made.
