This is a pure expression of Cabernet Franc from Tenuta dei Sette Cieli. The 2015 Scipio shows dark fruit nuances that are presented with enormous precision and sharpness. Like the estate’s blended red wine Indaco, this monovariety wine also shows a very dusty or dry side of carpentry shaving and crushed granite. Ultimately, this wine shows more balance because those dry notes are enhanced by blackberry, cherry confit and black currant all surrounded by spice and dry leather.
