Cabernet-Franc | Grape variety

Cabernet-Franc | Grape variety

This dark grape variety, originally French, is still overshadowed by the much better known Cabernet Sauvignon. The wines are usually somewhat lighter, less tannic and ripen earlier than Cabernet Sauvignon. Nevertheless, the Cabernet Franc waits with its unadulterated, herbaceous aroma.

To date, this grape variety is one of the six permitted, which may be used for Bordeaux wines. Together with Cabernet-Sauvignon and Merlot, it forms the basis for almost all red Bordeaux. But the grape variety also enjoys a certain popularity in Italy and allows winemakers additional freedom in developing their own cuvees. Unlike its big brother Cabernet-Sauvignon, Cabernet-Franc is far more aromatic and has notes of herbs, grasses and spices. - Gerardo

´Burdese´ Sicilia Menfi Rosso DOC 2016, Planeta, Sizilien
Burdese Sicilia Menfi Rosso DOC 2016

Planeta, Sicily

Interesting cuveé of Cabernet-Sauvignon and Cabernet-Franc: Deep, concentrated ruby red in the glass. The bouquet is dense and concentrated, reminiscent of ripe red fruits and sour cherry, with light hints of cocoa and minerals. Wonderfully balsamic, full-bodied and silky on the palate. Great Sicilian! - Gerardo

"Bright ruby with a rich violet sheen. Very intense nose with lots of ripe dark berry fruit, at the beginning a lot of tobacco and leather, then full of dark currants and blackberries, carob in the background. Straightforward and clear on the palate, lots of juicy fruit, then opens with firm, sturdy tannin, gives the wine a lot of grip, long finish." - Falstaff

"With ample intensity and definition, this wine shows the power of two Bordeaux grapes, 70% Cabernet Sauvignon and 30% Cabernet Franc, with the softness and sunny sweetness you might expect of a warm wine territory such as Sicily. The Planeta 2016 Sicilia Menfi Burdese shows a dark garnet appearance and medium rich concentration. Dried spice, scorched earth and black fruit appear on the bouquet. There is a dry, almost dusty quality to the tannins that are present but without any noticeable astringency. This would match up nicely with a classic Sicilian skillet of fennel sausage, orange slices and bread." - Robert Parker

´Sassicaia´ Bolgheri Sassicaia DOC 2018, Tenuta San Guido, Toskana
Sassicaia Bolgheri Sassicaia DOC 2018

Tenuta San Guido, Tuscany

Italy's red wine icon turns 50: from 1968 to 2018, fifty vintages have passed and fifty editions of this seminal Super Tuscan blueprint have been created. Yet the 2018 vintage could not be more typical: Balanced and rich in finesse, this anniversary Sassicaia presents itself as an archetype for which a separate DOC was once even created. - Gerardo

"Shiny, rich ruby-purple. Very crisp and clear fruit on the nose, precise, lots of cassis, blackberry and some leather. Also on the palate lots of juicy fruit, amazing freshness, dark currant, shows great tension, grippy tannin, fine mint on the finish, a long runner with potential for many years." - Falstaff

"All about radiance and finesse, this iconic Tuscan red has beguiling aromas of cedar, wild red berry, menthol and pipe tobacco that mingle with fragrant blue flowers. Made with 85% Cabernet Sauvignon and 15% Cabernet Franc, the focused, elegantly structured palate is vibrant and savory, delivering cassis, orange zest, licorice and a hint of coffee framed in taut, polished tannins. Bright acidity keeps it energized and balanced." - Wine Enthusiast

"Star bright raspberry in colour, this has an elegance and a sense of lift right from the start - a beautifully balanced, finessed and classical Sassicaia. The freshly cut and dried herbs of great Italian wines reveals themselves through the slow build up across the palate, along with gentle tobacco and liquorice notes. This is juicy and elegant, showing passion fruit and raspberry with an undertow of complexity. One to savour." - Decanter

"Refined and complex, this red is all about finesse and restraint, starting out with floral and black currant flavors that build steadily on the palate, with olive, cedar, tobacco and spice notes adding detail as this lingers on the terrific finish. Needs five to seven years to fully emerge." - Wine Spectator
