Reviews & Scores

Mon Rouge is a blend of three grapes 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. Plush-textured, fresh-tasting and easy to drink. Magnificent with piquant and moderately mature cheeses, white meats and baked fish. Excellent with Brodetto alla Gradese (Grado-style fish stew). A palate-stimulating aperitif served with cured meats and cold cuts.

TASTING NOTES

This is a very attractive and aromatic wine with vibrant blackberry fruit characters mingled with crushed flowers, wild herbs and a bright balsamic note. The palate is elegant and silky textured with a lovely freshness and fine length. A wine which is delicious from release, it also offers incredible value. Anticipated maturity 2016 to 2020.
