Characteristics: Deep ruby ​​red colour; ripe fruit in the nose, fragrant dried plums and smooth tannin on the palate. FRANZ III is a full-bodied and surprisingly delicate blend of Merlot (50%), Cabernet Sauvignon (30%) and Blauer Zweigelt (20%). About 50% of the wine is aged for 9 months in 2500l French oak barrels - a harmonious, rich in extracts, dark and gentle red wine.
