Frankovka (or Blaufränkisch) is the most typical red wine variety native to the old Habsburg monarchy. The grapes are coming from Sitno Volcano at the northern border of winegrowing in Central Europe.
Wine is macerated for 28 days on the skins in open vats, and then matured in old oak barrels for three years.
Čajkov Empress Frankovka is bursting with fresh mineral acidity, with superbly integrated alcohols. This wine is a sophisticated reminiscent of Pinot Noir style. It also has a great ageing potential.
Frankovka is a superb match for variety of lamb dishes and grilled meats.
