Juana Cabernet Franc is produced from a vineyard located in Perdriel, Luján de Cuyo, on the highest area of the Mendoza river - Mendoza, at an altitude of 950 meters above sea level.
The wine shows an intense bright velvety red color. The bouquet reveals a complex expression of fresh berries followed by hints of floral aromas.
