Cabernet Franc

A single-variety and incredibly intense Cabernet wine, characterised by a deep purplish red colour. Very typical, with lovely notes of red fruits blending with herbaceous and peppery notes. Pleasantly herbaceous in the mouth, it is fresh but also marked by typical and delicate tannins. The ideal pairing for red meats, grilled meats, roasts and stews.
