Rosade Furlane Merlot Venezia Giulia Igt 2018
stainless steel vats to maintain the freshness of his wines, the Valles make
terrific wines at all ends of the spectrum.
This Merlot is fresh and straight-forward but has a good weight of plummy fruit
and a lick of spice. It’s a versatile food wine, soft yet refreshing – one of
the problems with Merlot at this level can be a lack of structure or less
frequently underripe and subsequently manipulated fruit. Neither are present
here, instead the wine offers damsons and plums, a little earthiness and some
cedar but cleansing acidity, tannins and gentle alcohol.
A great Tuesday night supper bottle, easy lunch-time red, it would be quicker to
list the things this wouldn't pair with rather than those which would.
