Luisa
Cabernet Franc Isonzo del Friuli DOC
Friuli Venezia Giulia

The pride of the viticulture of Corona and one of the most requested wines. Cabernet Franc is a delicate varietal that has naturally low tannins. Pruning is used to ensure that the grapes get the warmth of the sun to enhance its tannins and reduce its green notes.
