Grape: Cabernet Sauvignon (2015)
Producer: Feudi di Romans
Location: Isonzo, Friuli, Italy
Why did we choose this wine?
Our sommelier Paolo has chosen this Cabernet Sauvignon because it shows the aromas and the flavours of the grape before oaking comes into play. In fact, the wine region where it comes from has a climate similar to Bordeaux but local producers do not use oak as much, leaving the grape itself to show.
