Zidarich Roz 2013Friuli-Venezia Giulia, ItalyThis is a blend of terrano, merlot and refosco del peduncolo rosso (the most prestigious refosco with the red stem) with 10-20 years vine age. This was destemmed, open vat fermented with native yeast in large oak, and then aged in Slavonian oak for two years prior to bottling without fining or filtration, and with no inputs. Plummy, with an etching of blue and black fruits and ample fine tannins that tug at the sides. There's a green branch swing that reminds of cabernet franc. Rustic and simple red ready for sausages.Tasted: 24 November 2018Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: EU 20.99 estimated retail Producer: ZidarichDistributors: Le Sommelier Inc.
