The Numina Cabernet Franc from Bodegas Salentein from Argentina is an impressively dense and powerful wine. In the glass it presents itself red to bordeaux-red, dense and clear, on the nose it seduces with its varietal and expressive aromas. These are notes of blackcurrants and wild berries, accompanied by the nuances of spices.
On the palate you can feel the ripe, velvety and round tannins, generous and full-bodied in taste, with a very long and lasting reverberation.
Vinification of the Numina Cabernet Franc by Bodegas Salentein
The grapes for this expressive Cabernet Franc from Argentina come exclusively from the vineyards of the estate "El Oasis". This is located between 1100 and 1150 m altitude in the Valle de Uco, at the foot of the Andes. This pure Cabernet Franc was harvested at the end of April and is then aged for 14 months in French oak wooden barrels before bottling.
