About the wine

From one of Italy’s leading winemakers comes this impeccably executed 100% Cabernet Franc wine. Vibrant and fresh fruit, with hints of spice. Light-bodied, with great structure and balance. A beautifully pure wine that showcases some of the best of Friulian wine-making.

About the wine

The Cabernet Franc grapes come from an old vineyard in the village of Buttrio, where they have about one hectare of organically farmed but not certified vines. Hand-picked, the grapes are then fully destemmed before maceration and fermentation with natural yeasts. After fermentation is complete the wine is racked into old barrels and a 10hl wooden vat, where it goes through malolactic fermentation. The wine is then racked and returned into the same barrels where it completes its ageing for a total of 20 months. It's finally bottled with no fining or filtration.
