Familia Zuccardi Polígonos Cabernet Franc 2017

Agrelo District, Luján de Cuyo, Northern Region, Mendoza, ArgentinaThe Polígonos creed is a selection of the best lots from different mountain terroirs within the Uco Valley. The criteria includes differences in altitude, soil and climate that define the sub-regions of San Pablo, Paraje Altamira and Gualtallary. Expect an aromatic, red fruited style slightly reminiscent of Loire Valley franc. The wine is aged in foudres, limiting the oak influence, and playing on its elegance and freshness. The palate is dry and floral with an herbaceous leafy undercurrent. Not your typical Argentine red. This need time in the bottle to gather itself.Tasted: 01 January 2019Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 39.99 private wine shops, restaurants QC 35.95 SAQ Producer: Familia ZuccardiDistributors: The Bacchus Group Inc.
