Vespa Rosso PDF TECH SHEET

Vespa Rosso is our estate red which balances power and finesse through a combination of indigenous and international varieties. A wine with ripe fruit and a slightly new-world flavor profile. The lush palate makes it drinkable upon release, though it is structured enough for aging.

GRAPE VARIETIES
50% Merlot, 30% Refosco, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Cabernet Franc

TASTING NOTES
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.

GREAT WITH
Steaks and braised red meats.

“A powerful, focused style... packs quite a punch. Crushed flowers, raspberries and tobacco linger on the polished finish”
