The Maculan Fratta appeals to an inner hedonist. The wine is made from 65% Cabernet Sauvignon and 35% Merlot grown in estate vineyards around Breganze, a charming Venetian wine village located along the foothills of the Dolomites. Fermented in stainless steel and then aged for one year new in French oak barriques, the Fratta is bottled unfined and unfiltered to preserve its beautiful profile, which has become legendary among connoisseurs.

Tasting Notes

Deep ruby red in color, Fratta offers intense aromas of blackberries and black plums, with notes of coffee, mocha, cocoa, and sweet tobacco. With a balanced expression of fine-grained tannins and full-bodied elegance, this truly opulent red wine unfolds into a long, unforgettable finish.

Food Pairing

Pair this special wine with an equally special dish – Beef Wellington – or with aged hard cheeses like Parmigiano-Reggiano and Pecorino Romano.
