Mon Rouge – DOC Friuli Colli Orientali

Mon Rouge is a blend of three wines in which each component lends varietal character to a whole that is more than the sum of its parts. Merlot’s intense fruit is set off by the tannic extract of Cabernet and signs off with all the depth of a Refosco-led back palate.
Invitingly soft tannins are beautifully complemented by approachability as the territory-true sensory profile lays out berry fruits on the nose and delicate spice on the palate.
