Italian wine and grape guide : Cabernet Franc

Cabernet Franc

Cabernet Franc originates in France and it is often used together with the Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot to create what is called a " Bordeaux blend". In Italy is widely found in the north east, especially Friuli Venezia Giulia and Veneto, in Tuscany, and the deep south, Apulia and Sicily.

The Cabernet Franc variety has, in recent year increased its presence in Tuscany particularly in the region of Bolgheri, where the grape is appreciated for adding elegance to their wines otherwise, Friuli Venezia Giulia remains the region where the grape is planted the most and plenty of 100% the grape is bottled on its own.

Cabernet Franc wines, when 100%, have a very unique taste profile, very hearty and grassy on the nose, with little tannins and a lively acidity.
