Curtefranca

Rosso DOC

This wine is a blend of grapes that complement each other. The Merlot tempers the aggressiveness and structure of the Cabernet Sauvignon and the Cabernet Franc delivers ethereal herbaceous aromas.

Curtefranca Rosso DOC is an “organic wine”, the result of the choice towards processing methods, in the countryside and in the cellar, aimed at guaranteeing the maximum representation of the territory. In the vineyard only substances of natural origin are used. Biodiversity is also encouraged to allow for a balance between all forms of life, plant and animal.
