Grape varieties: Franconia (a.k.a. Blaufränkisch) and a small part of Pinot Nero
Tasting notes: Rather intense ruby red color; vinous, well balanced nose, with herbaceous notes and nuances of berry fruit and underbrush. Dry on the palate, elegant, medium to full body, well balanced. Ideal with Friulian cuisine.
Serving suggestions: Very pleasant to match fumé pork with sweet apple pickles (mostarda di mele), kren and vegetable compote – a traditional recipe from Gorizia and Trieste, which enhances this wine’s characteristics and is in turn enhanced by the wine.
