2014 Franconia (Visintini)

Visintini, Franconia, Colli Orientali, Friuli, Italy 2014

100% Franconia

VIOLETS, POMEGRANATE AND BLUEBERRY ALL DAY LONG

On the very edge of Italy - less than four miles from its border with Slovenia - the Visintini siblings Cinzia, Palmira and Oliviero continue the good work of their great-grandfather Domenico, who bought the estate in the late 1800s. Their wine cellar dates to the 1200s; there is some serious history here, but their winery is very modern. This juicy Franconia is hand-harvested and fermented in cement tanks, and that's all they do - their work in the cellar is minimal, but their work in the vineyards is extensive. With certified organic vines moving toward biodynamic, the Visintinis are continuing the 800 year legacy of their land.

Serving Suggestion: Bucheron cheese. Braised venison with cherry-pancetta reduction sauce. Pizza with feta, gorgonzola and spicy sausage.
