Cabernet Franc Friuli DOC Grave
A noble grape with French origins, its fame is linked to the story of the great Bordeaux wines, as well as cabernet sauvignon and merlot. This grape has been grown in Friuli since the time of Napoleon, where the soil and climatic conditions bring the best out of the variety's characteristics, and has confirmed it as being a wine on its own. Independent, with unique characteristics amongst Cabernet Franc wines around the world.
Tasting Notes
Our Cabernet Franc comes over as being "typically Friulian", with a ruby red colour, with intense purplish reflections, fluid in the glass. It has a nose which encompasses red fruits like cherry, raspberry, blackberry and blueberry, to spices like marjoram, rhubarb, gentian root and white pepper, with fresh, welcoming and decisive feelings. On the palate it is pleasantly fresh, not too heavy, with olfactory feelings that are repeated as tastes, boosted by a soft feeling produced by its sweet tannins and by soft herbaceous notes, which are the traditional characteristics of the Cabernet-Franc of our region.

When to drink
The Cabernet Franc of Friuli is a red wine used at various different social gatherings: from chats with friends, to a snack with a simple plate of smoked meats.
And it is in this way that this wine is at its best, because of its great communicative capacity and its ability to mix in perfectly with salami and cheese, both fresh and semi-mature, both cow and goat varieties.
