2021 Emiliano Falsini, IGT Costa Toscana Cab. Franc LIMITEUdsolgt
Limite Cabernet Franc Costa Toscana is created from the finest selection of Cabernet Franc grapes grown along the Tuscan Coast in one of the most beautiful settings with some of the best conditions for growing this noble variety, which has found a new home in this corner of Tuscany. The choice of grapes to make Limite always involves a careful selection of the best bunches in the vineyard, followed by the separate vinification of the grapes from the most appropriate parcels according to the climate over the year, resulting in an elegant, characterful wine with a strong varietal identity, a great Mediterranean wine but with a fresh, dynamic quality, able to convey all the energy, power and character of Costa Toscana Cabernet Franc.
Emiliano’s top Cabernet Franc comes from the same vines, averaging 30 years of age, but is entirely aged in 225 litre Bordeaux barrels, which gives the wine extra structure and ageing potential. It has intense blackberry and blackcurrant fruit flavours with very fine vanilla notes from the oak barrels. Fuller bodied, more concentrated and dense than Il Debbio, this is a real mouthful of fruit, complexity and power. It is still on the young side but should drink very nicely for another 8-10 years.
Enjoy with red meats, lamb, aged cheeses and cured game.
