Curtefranca o Terre di Franciacorta (Lombardy) The wine shows an intense ruby red color and nuances of ruby red, moderate transparency. The nose reveals intense, clean, pleasing and refined aromas which start with aromas of toasted wood followed by aromas of black cherry, raspberry, blueberry, plum and violet as well as aromas of vanilla, licorice and hints of tobacco and chocolate. In the mouth has good correspondence to the nose, a pleasing tannic attack with a pleasing crispness however well balanced by alcohol, intense flavors and good body. The finish is persistent with clean flavors of plum, raspberry and black cherry. A well made wine.
