The 2016 Villa Locatelli Cabernet Franc is sourced from estate vineyards immediately south of the Italian village of Cormons, very near the border with Slovenia. Cabernet Franc has been grown in this area for over 200 years. This wine is a deep ruby red and displays excellent typicity, with intense aromas of cherry and bell pepper that lead to a medium-bodied palate with peppery notes. Serve with salami, red meat, risotto with sausage, or Cotechino sausage with lentils.
