DESCRIPTION

100% Cabernet Franc. The flavor just bursts out of the glass, spice laden, black pepper, red fruits, vivacious, fresh and curvy all at the same time, and at an unbelievable price. If you’ve never had a great Italian Cabernet Franc, this is the one to try.

Winemaking:

the grapes are destemmed and left to macerate for 6-8 days at a temperature of 26°C, with delestage and pump-overs

Aging:

after malolactic fermentation the wine is racked into oak barrels where it is left for 6 months, then ages in the bottle for 2 months

Description and food pairing:

elegant fragrance of newly mowed grass, bell pepper, ripe raspberry, green pepper spice and liquorice; spicy and dry, goes well with red meat dishes, roasts, cured meats and mature cheeses.
