Story of the Wine:
This French grape was planted over a century ago in the hilly area at the border of the flat land. The small and sun facing hills have a great potential for growing vines, and they benefit from a continental climate; the heat from the coast, not to far away and the cold air coming from the mountains at the back. The daily temperature range and the characteristics of the soil are perfectly combined with this grape. The Forchir estate, established in the late 19th century, has over 200 ha. of vineyards and grows a wide variety of both international varietals and indigenous grapes.
Grape(s): 100% Cabernet Sauvignon
Area: From vineyards in Felettia di Bicinicco near Udine
Italy’s north east hills have long held and justifiably so the reputation of making some the country’s finest wines particularly with top quality grapes particularly from their best wineries such as Forchir. Full but dry with tobacco tones and touches of blackcurrant and spiciness on the finish.
