Expert's Choice: Friuli reds

8 of 18

Livio Felluga, Vertigo Cabernet- Merlot, Friuli Colli Orientali 2011
A jubilant medium-bodied wine. Lively and refreshing acidity, the tannins are tantalising, only just ripe, and lend the wine a deliciously invigorating crunchy texture. The aromas and flavours are of fresh berries and cherries, the finish long and dry. 17.5/20pts (91/100pts)
