A fascinating example of Cabernet Franc showing red fruits, strawberry and cherries well matched with spices; soft yet refreshing on the palate. The Valduga family emigrated from Italy to Brazil in 1875 and since then has been producing wine: first for their own consumption, then in bulk, and now as one of the countrys leading producers of premium bottled wine. Despite the growth of the business, the family remains involved in every aspect of the production, even winery design. As Brazil starts to make waves on the export market, Casa Valduga is one of the pioneering producers setting the pace.
Grapes were grown in Valdugas own vineyards in the Campanha region, which borders Uruguay. This is Brazils oldest vineyard region, as well as its lowest-lying, at 210 metres above sea level; soils are granite and limestone. The grapes were hand-harvested and then underwent a further selection in the winery.
