Cabernet Franc Collio DOC Russiz Superiore
Russiz Superiore's Cabernet Franc is made from 100% Carbernet Franc grapes grown in Russiz Superiore - Capriva del Friuli (GO), at 80 meters above sea level. After destemming, the grapes underwent maceration in large stainless steel vats and were delicately pressed to maintain their varietal flavors and aromas. The wine aged in small oak casks for twelve months. After bottling, the wine remained in the cellar for approximately six months of bottle-aging.
Deep ruby-red color; intense, compact, and dark. The nose is complex and fruity - lots of ripe black cherries, blackberries, and black currants with a hint of green pepper. The wine is elegant with a rich, full and pleasant body, with fresh, silky undertones and a lingering finish that confirms its persistent aromas. We suggest serving it at a temperature of 18-20 °C.
FOOD MATCHING SUGGESTIONS
Russiz Superiore's Cabernet Franc is an excellent red wine to combine with meat, especially feathered game, grilled meats and aged cheeses.
