Explanation: This selection was not made on the base of all Slovenian wines but only of 20 wineries which decided to participate at the tasting for the famous Italian wine guide. Vini buoni d’Italia is focused only on autochtone varieties so another rule: the only wines that were tasted were the autochtone varieties of the regions.
