ROSSO DELLA VALPOLICELLA “AZZARDO” IGT- VINTAGE 2016
This great wine is characterized by a velvety ruby red of warm luster. It has a fascinating nose with woody scents of fern, it needs time to unleash a rich supply of dark fruit, overripe white moss, dried leaves and bark, liquorice root and rhubarb. The envelopment of scents is a prelude to a generous structure that will also be confirmed on the palate. Sip of great balance, warm and enveloping, mediated by a noble tannin of remarkable tannic grit and great freshness. It stretches a lot with consistent returns, closing in a long and warm finish.
ABOUT FRANCHINI WINERY:
A built cellar respecting a tradition 300 years old.
The Franchini farm is based in Negrar di Valpolicella, in the Forlago area in the heart of the Valpolicella Classica.
The historic house was built by my predecessors around 1700 with the cellar built according to the techniques of the time with a “Romanesque face” and with stones and lime typical of the area.
