Riccitelli Viñedos De Montaña 2018 Cabernet Franc is fragrant with pink florals, ripe dark raspberry and pepper spice aromas. The wine is dry, medium-plus-bodied and generous with layers of dark raspberry, pepper spice, dried herbs and balanced with brilliant acidity. Tannins are fine-grained and velvety. The Cab Franc grapes for this vintage were sourced from two different vineyards in Los Arbolitos in Chacayes and in the Campo de los Andes. The vineyards are between 1,150 metres and 1,300 metres above sea level.

Cabernet Franc food pairings: roast turkey, duck, veal chops.
