CASTELVECCHIO
Cabernet Franc


T he herbaceous note that characterizes this red wine of great class fades with ageing, becoming ethereal, with composite tonalities. The initial faming ruby colour melts with time into silken aristocratic reflections. The bouquet maintains the herbaceous fragrance of the wooden barrel even in the bottle. The taste is generous, soft, and velvety. It can be perfectly served with white roasted meat and wild game fowl.
