Cabernet Franc

  • I Clivi
  • Friuli Venezia-Giulia, Italy

Method & Production

All of the grapes I Clivi's grow for their wines are certified organic, though the wines themselves are not certified. The Cabernet Franc grapes are picked from south-east facing vineyards on the hills of Buttrio, in the Province of Udine. Fermentation using indigenous yeasts, after which the wine is matured on the lees in cement for 10 months. 

Tasting notes

Strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, and currants, a slight smokiness, and floral notes of violet, with a delicately herbaceous background and a salty finish. Elegant and complex, an extremely smooth and fine Cabernet, with a magnificent acid tension.
