Dika Frankovka 2016
Feravino Winery finds roots of their tradition way back in the 18th century. In Slavonia wine culture was brought by Cistercian and the Templar monks. In 1804 the existing wine cellar was constructed and wine production in Feričanci began. Feravino is a continental winery that invests love, passion, and knowledge in the top quality red wines. Feravino gives a special attention to the queen of their vineyards and winery, the Frankovka (Franconia) grape variety. Which has found her home on the gentle slopes of Krndija mountain!
Frankovka is a full, aromatic and well-rounded wine, made from a variety which is considered to be of Austrian origin, but came to Slavonia at the end of the 18th century and found its new home on the gentle Slavonian slopes. It is the fruit of love between the sun, the soil, the vine, the oak and the man. This wine is characterized by a beautiful ruby red color. Acidity is moderate, enough to keep the wine in good shape in the bottle. Alcohol levels, depending on the vintage, are usually higher. Mildly astringent on the palate, of pleasant acids, balanced and full, with a long finish. Leaving a persistent flavour that lingers in the mouth; this wine is the perfect choice with red meat and game dishes.
