Italy, Friuli-Venezia Giulia, Friuli Aquileia

Wine Rating:  87

Rustic wine with bold aromas and flavors. Composed of 60% Refosco dal Peduncolo Rosso, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot. It needed some good time in the glass — improved greatly. Perhaps should have decanted. In the nose it was fruity and woody. Lots of flavors in the mouth — a more complex wine that I expected. Dark jam flavors, blackberry and currant, licorice, a bit of spiciness, and plenty of oak. Good wine to accompany grilled food or a bowl of pasta.
