Vicenza - Denominazione di Origine Controllata.

Our Cabernet Franc is made using 100% Cabernet Franc from our fifty year old vines and expresses the best characteristics of the variety, which has made its way from the Pyrenees, up to the Loire valley and arrived in the Veneto during the eighteenth century. These vines have flourished in their new habitat and have become the reference for red wines.
