Piattelli Limited Edition Cabernet Franc
This limited edition of Cabernet Franc is a barrel selection from our El Chaski Vineyard, located in the Cafayate Valley, at 5,577 feet above sea level. It was fermented in concrete eggs and later aged in French oak barrels for 12 months. As a result, we find a wine with aromas of red fruits, intense color, and exhibiting persistent yet well balanced tannins.
“Planted as recently as 2010, this young vine Cabernet Franc is one of only a handful of examples of the variety in Cafayate. It’s quite a plush style, but has classic herbal aromas, silky tannins and a refreshing green streak supported by acidity.” Tim Atkin 2017
