Antonio Galloni

AG 95
"A stunning, riveting wine, the 2018 Cabernet Franc possesses breathtaking aromatic intensity and nuance, not to mention tons of class. Lavender, plum, rose petal, mint and spice are some of the many notes that open up in this very pretty and nuanced Franc. All the elements are simply in the right place. Wow!" -Antonio Galloni
