The grape and the vineyard
In the farm, which extends for about 11 hectares in the municipality of Narni, we have identified and selected an area that has the ideal characteristics for the production of a great Cabernet Franc.
The good practice in the vineyard, including the thinning of the bunches, are all aimed to achieve a production between 700 and 900 grams of grapes per plant.
Grapes are selected individually before starting the vinification which requires a drain of 20% and a long period of maceration.
The typical characters of Cabernet Franc, joined to the territory of origin which contributes significantly to their exaltation, are highly and typical expressed.
The color is intense, complex aroma is followed by a wrap- around style with determinate tannins but graceful.
