Carmelo Patti 2015 Cabernet Franc
About the Producer
- Carmelo Patti was an important force for the rebirth of fine wine production in Mendoza in the eighties and to this day is one of the most respected enologists and winemakers in the country. His winemaking style is as unique as his character; no consultants, no manipulation, no pretentions
- His style is singular and nearly anachronistic – favoring a classical, “naked” approach over huge, heavily oaked fruit in his wines. He also releases them only when he deems them “ready” with wines – typically 5 years after harvest at the earliest.
- All wines are made naturally, with no chemical additives and only native yeast.
