Cabernet franc, a fascinating and mysterious red grape variety of Bordeaux origin and more precisely from the Gironde area, probably derived from the Vitis Biturica variety, has more and more admirers in the world. Together with Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot he composes the recipe of the most copied and appreciated wine in the world, the Taglio Bordolese.

Compared to its cousin cabernet sauvignon, it is not very widespread in the world, although it is establishing itself in countries such as California, Argentina, Australia and New Zealand, it adapts well everywhere, preferring the cold and suffering from hot climates. It is often confused with carmenere, but they are two different grape varieties. In France it has successfully established itself in the Loire and Libournais, especially in the areas of Saint Emilion and Pomerol.

In Italy it is found mainly in Lombardy, Friuli-Venezia Giulia and Trentino. Aging in steel, it opens on the nose red fruit jam, moist earth and lavender. Fresh, medium-bodied, gentle tannins, it closes with a herbaceous touch.

The Zof farm is located in Corno di Rosazzo, between the Colli Orientali del Friuli, along the hilly belt of the province of Udine near the border with Slovenia, in these places, the climate, exposure and soil are fundamental factors. which give local wineries a significant qualitative advantage.

The Zof winery is the result of a passion that has lasted for four generations: it was Daniele Zof who over 20 years ago, after graduating in oenology, took the reins of the family vocation and has always been committed to combining tradition and technology, maintaining however intact that delicate balance that guarantees a genuine and refined product, far from the industrial chain.

The production of Zof, equally divided into white and red wines, favors the traditional vines of the area which have its most emblematic points of reference in Ribolla Gialla, Friulano and Schiopettino. Cleanliness of the wines, elegance and freshness are the prerogatives of Zof wines. From the care of the 14 hectares of vineyards, fine wines are born. Over the years, the collaboration with the famous winemaker Donato Lanati has been important, thanks to which the Friulian company has acquired knowledge on aging wines still applied today.
