A bright and sophisticated Valpolicella from a top Venetian producer. The family has real commitment to quality, their Soave white being rated 'Best Veneto Wine' by Decanter. This Valpolicella red was sourced in vines of 25-30 years on marble clay, fermented in steel to preserve that beautiful freshness and flavour definition, then aged in wood for a nice depth of texture. A classic style made just so well, the Franchetto red is delicious now with medium to lighter fare.

Its Origins

On the east side of Soave is the village of Terrossa, where the Franchetto family has lived for over a century. Antonio Franchetto continues his family’s long history of cultivating the traditional grapes of these lands: Garganega (used for this wine) and Pinot Grigio. Now his daughter is also at the helm bringing new vision to this quality focused winery.
