Super Uco Calcareo Granito De Tupungato Cabernet Franc 2018


Tasting Notes: Rich and brawny, with intense blackberry fruit that finishes quite dry, this is indeed rather Chinon like, perhaps with more weight, and loads of personality.

Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate 94/00: The Cabernet Franc ages for longer in barrel than the rest of the Calcáreo wines and therefore is bottled and released later than the rest of the range. So, I tasted the 2015 Calcáreo Cabernet Franc de Gualta, which is called Calcáreo de Granito de Tupungato Cabernet Franc in some markets. It’s produced with full clusters, and it has a very peppery and slightly earthy feeling to it. There’s always a reminiscence with a Chinon here, as it’s dry, herbal and austere. They now mention the granite-based soils on the label, and it has the austerity of the soils, with grainy minerality, freshness and length, very expressive.

Food Pairing: Beef, Pork, Game (deer, venison), Poultry, Mild and soft cheese.
