INKY BERRY, VIOLET PERFUME, BRIGHT & SUBSTANTIAL At Visintini, just four miles from the Slovenian border, three siblings (Cinzia, Palmira, and Oliviero) continue the work of their great-grandfather, who bought the 13th century estate in the late 1800s. Franconia is one of many names for Austria’s Blaufrankisch, a Central European dynamo. This is one of our favorite renditions of said variety, teeming with berryish assertiveness and the spice of wild flowers – an old world delight with modern zeal. Serving Suggestions:Braised venison w/ cherry-pancetta reduction. Pizza w/ feta, fennel, fiddleheads, oregano & crushed red pepper.
