Azienda Agricola Eugenio Rosi Cabernet Franc 2007

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Organically farmed and bottled unsulfured from old vines that lie within the city limits of Rovereto in an old vineyard of pure sand. The nose here is explosive with big balsamic and incense notes popping from the glass then fine rich notes of smoked paprika, drying chilies, and mica rich earth slowly revealing themselves. Medium bodied and very elegant in the mouth with great balance between the ripe tannins and fine acids. The fruit on the palate is impressively deep and pure with just a hint of the pepper/herbaceous quality so apparent on the nose. Full of wild berry fruit and has just a whisper of rusticity adding some complexity on the palate. This has great focus and the finish is rich in velvety tannins which add some weight and depth to the lingering notes of earth fruit and a gentle note of exotic, aromatic wood. 91pts
