Italian wine and grape guide : Cabernet Franc

Cabernet Franc

The grape Cabernet Franc originates in France and it is often used together with the Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot to create what is called a " Bordeaux Cut " . In Italy is often found in the north east, especially Friuli and Veneto, in Tuscany, and the deep south, Apulia and Sicily. The Cabernet Franc grape 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 the wines . When vinified on its own, however, is not as good, it has very little tannin and is very grassy on the nose.
