Frâncuşă is an old light-skinned white wine grape variety originating from Romania and it is located mostly in the northeastern part of the country along the border of Moldova, mostly used in the blend for the sweet Cotnari wine. Frâncuşă is a late-ripening variety high in acids, and often displays vegetal and grapey aromas, along with nutty flavours. It is the best fit for vinification as a dry wine as its sugar levels are relatively low, but is very rarely seen as a varietal wine. It is commonly blended and the variety is typically used in smaller proportions than other grapes like Fetească to add crispness. The only country having plantations of the grape is Romania.
