Why we love it
The Cabernet Franc is a red wine that you either like or dont, the grape itself is often used in blends, including Bordeaux, and very rarely on its own except Friuli and Veneto and a few other exceptions. We love the grape and we love this Cabernet Franc from Scubla, a fantastic winery and person, with its distinctive herbaceous, rustic and penetrating raspberry aroma that evolve into a more complex nose as it evolves..
The artisan who made it
Roberto Scubla is an amazing person who is very passionate about his wines. He took a big risk and left a safe job in the bank for an uncertain future amongst the vines and he has truly succeeded in what he was trying to achieve. His winery and vineyards are located in the Colli Orientali area of Friuli, north east of Italy, near the Slovenian border, where he grows native grapes like the Friulano and Verduzzo but also grapes that have found an ideal environment in Friuli such as the Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon or the Sauvignon and all his wines have plenty of character and elegance.
