Cabernet Franc Friuli Colli Orientali DOC
Arzenton's Cabernet Franc is obtained from 100% Cabernet Franc grapes, harvested and selected by hand in the vineyard during the harvest. The must ferments in concrete tanks with delastage every 2 days, in order to completely separate the must from the grapes and alcoholic fermentation follows the malolactic one. The wine is then poured into other concrete tanks, to refine for at least 2 years, followed by a further ageing in the bottle for at least 6 months.
Red colour tending to violet. Herbal perfumes in the juvenile phase, emphasizing hints of freshly cut hay. Good body, which is structured at its best especially with age. We suggest serving it at a temperature of 18 °C.
FOOD MATCHINGU SUGGESTIONS
Arzenton's Cabernet Franc is an excellent red wine to pair with grilled red meats, game (roe deer, hare, wild boar) and aged cheeses.
Arzenton company was founded in 1968, with the accomodation of a hilly area to vineyards located in Bosco Romagno, between the heights of Spessa of Cividale del Friuli: thus in one of the places most suited to viticulture of the DOC Colli Orientali del Friuli.
