Kékfrankos - or Blaufränkisch in German, Franconia in Northern Italy - produces light, subtle, fruity and earthy reds, and would fit in the Gamay, Cabernet Franc or even Pinot Noir category. Possibly originating from Styria, now across Slovenia and Austria and then part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, which helped with the popularity of the grape in Eastern Europe and Germany.
Annamaria Reka-Koncz's only red. As the most widely planted red grape in Hungary, it was no surprise to Annamaria to find out she had some in her 3ha. From 40-60 years old vines. And it's awesome.
