Vigna Traverso Cabernet Franc DOC
Price per bottle 0,75l
Vigna Traverso became part of the Ornella Molon Traverso family in 1998.
This new company, always driven by a philosophy that has quality as its main cardinal point, immediately met with excellent results and great appreciation from Italian and international public and critics alike. The restructuring of the vineyards, the introduction of new plants with high density per hectare and the use of extremely modern equipment have permitted the company to enter the market with excellent quality wines.
45 hectares of land, 16 dedicated to vines, are situated halfway up the hills, with the ideal soil, microclimate and altitude to produce great wines with very refined bouquet and structure. The white grape varieties are Pinot Grigio, Tocai, Sauvignon, Ribolla Gialla and Piccolit, while the red grape varieties are Cabernet Franc, Refosco, Merlot and Schioppettino.
The new vines have been planted with the guyot cultivation method, reproposing local varieties, reducing the amount of grapes per vine with the aim of improving the quality of the wine even further. We have a beautiful view of the hills with the terraced rows of vines, surrounded by the woods with the cellar in the centre.
