SANTA LUCIA
CURTEFRANCA ROSSO

Curtefranca rosso finds its origins in the farming tradition:
Merlot, Cabernet franc and sauvignon create the right balance in a harmoniously full-bodied yet smooth and pleasant wine.
Organic farming, together with the respect for nature exalts what the territory has to offer: the result is a wine with elegant notes,
spice flavors and scents of berries, making this wine great if combined with our cuisine, especially meat and skewers.

GRAPES: 40% Cabernet Franc, 35% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot.

VINEYARDS: The grapes came from two vineyards in Erbusco. The soil is morainic, clay loam. Average age of vines: 10 years.

WINEMAKING: After de-stemming the grapes ferment in stainless steel tanks remaining in contact with the skins for a period of about 10-15 days.

In the spring, the wine is bottled and aged in bottle for 6 months.
