Franconia (2020)


  • Franconia is a single-varietal dry red wine made with the Friuli traditional grape of the same name.

    Franconia by Bortolusso is a medium-bodied red, with a deep ruby color. It is moderately tannic with a note of acidity. The younger it is opened it gives off herbaceous notes with a really juicy feel of cherry and raspberry notes, as it ages more aromas of undergrowth come out.
