Cabernet

2016

What is better than Franc and Sauvignon together?

Varietal

Cabernet Sauvignon 70%, Cabernet Franc 30%

The Cabernet variety was introduced into Friuli Venezia Giulia several decades ago and found a comfortable new home.

It adapted very well, probably because it found itself on the same latitude of its original French region, but of course, as every land is different Cabernet from our region is unique in its own way.
