Cellar for up to 15 years. No need to decant but best to open it an hour before service.

Franchetti is the most representative wine of the Passopisciaro estate. It expresses and represents Andrea Franchetti's minimalist idea of wine and his personal vision about terroir. This unique wine is made from a blend of Petit Verdot and Cesanese d'Affile which varies in percentage each harvest depending on the vintage but which always gives the same flavor imprint.

The vineyards are located on the Contrada Guardiola, where the soil is rich in rock and ash. Each plant produces only 5 buds from which the best grapes are selected and fermented in steel tanks. Fermentation is followed by malolactic and aging made in new French oak barrels for 4 months, plus 14 months in concrete vats and large oak barrels.

It's a dark wine with volcanic colors and heady fruit aromas accompanied by robustness, and a generous freshness. The bouquet is opulent and characterized by fruity notes, followed by spices, leather, and granite stone. In the mouth, the structure is powerful and generous. The wine is deep and concentrated, soft, rich, and very long. It goes well with tasty meat preparations, such as beef with black truffles or veal with Porcini mushrooms.
