IGT Toscana Cabernet Franc

Cabernet Franc

It is commonly thought that clay soil produces more structured wines, but this is not the case at Roccatederighi.

It is here that the “dell’Asina” vineyard (the “Donkey vineyard”), that produces our Cabernet Franc, is located, in soil rich in clay and marked by typical schist and palombino limestone rocks.

This unique land creates a Cabernet Franc that is the expression of pure fruit, with a sincere and vibrant identity.

Data sheet

Our Cabernet Franc is characterized by a hint of menthol typical of this variety in harmony with fresh and never boring fruit. The lingering mineral finishing notes invite you to drink more.
