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

A vivid mid-ruby, dried rose petal and balsamic scented reserva, still showing vibrant raspberry fruit and fresh acid. Chocolate-coated cherry character with hints of vanilla, but in a far more restrained way than in classic Rioja wines. Superb structure with ripe, fine-grained tannins and a tar-like grip towards the end of the long finish. Armit Wines
