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

An extremely elegant reserva with an enveloping bouquet of crushed red cherries and subtle spices with just a hint of lavender. On the palate, smooth textures and bright red berry fruits are balanced by a refined mineral character which leads to a long and refreshing finish. Beautifully defined and supple, and almost Burgundian in style, this wine will age well...

TASTING NOTES

A beautiful Cabernet bouquet of blackcurrant and mint with dark berried, spicy Shiraz and soft red fruIt's from the Merlot. The palate is soft and juicy exhibiting flavours blackcurrant, blackberry and plum with a touch of nutmeg spice. The tannins are fine, long and soft making it ideal for early drinking or short term maturation (3-5 years).
