Welcome to Tesco Wine by the case.
We hope you enjoy your visit.
Created exclusively for Tesco by award-winning winemaker Gaetane Carron, this is smooth, dark and ravishingly juicy.
The Montepulciano grapes are sourced from hillside vineyards in central Abruzzo, Italy and some of the wines are aged in American oak barrels.
Wonderfully opulent, this is a great match for red meats, stews and burgers.
This wine is ideal for drinking now but can be kept for up to 3 years

Of the 2011 vintage, Olly Smith said: "This juicy, mellow red is a good all-rounder to pair with meatier Chinese dishes. Fruity, soft, dark and a decent week-night glugger."
'La Francese' is the locals' nickname for Gaetane Carron, the French winemaker who charmed the growers in Abruzzo into giving her their very best Montepulciano grapes. She has a real passion for wines and insists on being closely involved in the entire process, vine to glass.
This wine is produced from some of the very best grapes grown in the hillside vineyards of Central Abruzzo.
