Modra Frankinja is the most famous red wine of Posavje, which is known for its elegance, but at the same time shows a strong character thanks to its phenolic structure.
The wine has a soft purple-ruby color. Distinct fruitiness is reflected in both smell and taste. A young and lively fruity aroma with distinct notes of pepper, red currant and dried herbs. In the mouth, the wine is dry, medium-bodied, with spicy notes and a good balance of tannins and acids.
The wine can be enjoyed on its own or accompanied by various dishes based on red meat, venison, dried meat products, selected cheeses and other Posavje delicacies. Serving temperature: 15-17 °C.
