Cabernet Franc is an indigenous French red wine grape that was planted in Italy in the late 1800s. Widely planted in Friuli Venezia Giulia, Cabernet Franc wines are usually light-bodied and fragrant with notes of red fruit, herbs and underwood. Cabernet Franc, one of the parent grapes of Cabernet Sauvignon, is used either in single varietal wines or blends and has low tannins and good acidity.
