Giuseppe & Luigi Anselmi Cabernet Franc 2014
Anselmi is a family owned producer and not to be confused with a much larger concern of the same name. The family produces wine only from their own vineyards. This Chardonnay is a great example of what family control offers - incredible quality and value.
The Anselmi family vineyards lie mostly in Fruili Guilia which tends to offer the best sites in Venezie, on slopes with much improved aspect over the plains. This allows even ripening and the slightly increased elevation means cooler nighttime temperatures which prolong the ripening period, ensuring that maximum character is developed in the grapes before harvesting. In these more delicate, refined white styles this longer, gentle ripening period is very important - short blasts of very high temperatures and unrelenting sunny days tend not to produce delicate nuances and finesse.
