A red wine that is
tenaciously rooted to its
land and herbaceous to
the right extent.
Its legacy is this land, our family. Workable but sensitive, it demands careful crafting, both in the vineyard and in the winery. Franc because of its french origin – from the gironde – and in our mother tongue, friulano, “franc” means honest and straightforward, in a word: “frank”. And this wine is definitely frank. After aging in oak barrels, the sweet tannins and the aromas mingle perfectly in a cherry red wine offering dense notes of red berries. This wine is warm and cosy, while its herbaceous character is open and refreshing.

The grapes are de-stemmed and are left to macerate for 20 days. During this period, fermentation is assisted by regular remontage, delestage and air mixing. The wine is the racked in oak barrels where it ages for 12 months before being bottled.
Honest and persuasive. It has a beautiful appearance thanks to its deep sour cherry red. The nose is a cocktail of red berries with notes that are slightly herbaceous. In the mouth it is full, honest and harmonious, presenting a rich bouquet of aromas and delicate tannins.
It is a classic red wine of Friuli. It goes well with dishes of the “traditional” local cuisine, such as Frico, Frittata, salami and game meat.
