Product Details

This wine is from Italy, Friuli-venezia Giulia region, Colli Orientali Del Friuli sub-region. The 2008 Vespa Rosso is a big, opulent red loaded with dark fruit, sweet spices, herbs and leather. The wine possesses outstanding length on the palate in a style that is unusually rich for Friuli. Ideally the wine needs to be opened about 30 minutes in advance to allow for the bouquet to find its focus. Vespa Rosso is 50% Merlot, 30% Refosco, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Cabernet Franc.. Vespa Rosso is uncommonly fruit-forward and structured for a cold weather red wine, and yet it retains many of the spicy, earthy notes that characterize Friulian reds. The extra effort made in both the vineyard (sharply reducing yields) and the cellar (small batch fermentation in tonneaux) helps elevate Vespa Rosso beyond the ranks of everyday reds.. Steaks and braised red meats.
