Durigutti Cabernet Franc Classico
WHY WE LOVE IT
- This is the top Cabernet Franc bottling from the most critically acclaimed producers of Cabernet Franc in Mendoza.
- Sourced from two low-yielding vineyards that date back to the mid-1950’s. If you are looking for a more modern style Cabernet Franc with broad structure and power, this is one you’ll be coming back for over and over
Varietal Composition: 100% Cabernet Franc
Elaboration: Alcoholic Fermentation with native yeasts at temperatures between 81º and 84º F. Aged for 16 months in French oak barrels
Tasting Notes: Intense red color with blue hints. To the nose, spices with balsamic aromas and violets. In the mouth, it is velvety with sweet, smooth and persistent tannins.

Brothers Héctor and Pablo Durigutti are two of Argentina’s most sought after consulting enologists. Hector first became known for his work alongside Alberto Antonini as one of the co-founders of Altos Las Hormigas, the forward thinking project that placed Argentine Malbec on the international map in the late nineties. Pablo comes with his own star studded resume which includes a stint at Catena and connections with more old-vine landowners than anyone else in the region.
