The Franci family, raised in Montalcino for many generations, started its business making honey by the patriarch of the family Guido Franci. Franci Franca winery, run by his son Fabio Tassi, is strongly bonded with Montalcino’s territory since its origin. Its wine clearly expresses its tie to the land with elegance and uniqueness.

"This is one of three new wines presented by Fabio Tassi this year. The 2016 Brunello di Montalcino Betinna Cuvée Franci shows fullness and generous fruit with ripe cherry, plum, sweet spice and forest floor. This wine is aged in 20-hectoliter botte for 30 months, and this gives it ample time to soften and integrate. This special cuvée shows a pretty sense of purity and depth with a punchy, lively bouquet that peels back slowly and elegantly." 96 pts, Monica Larner, WA

"A ripe, opulent wine with plum, cherry and citrus character with some toasted oak and spice. It’s full-bodied with layers of tannins and exotic fruit. Generous, but not overdone. Velvety and very seductive. Drink after 2024." 97 pts, James Suckling
