The Seductive Reds of Friuli-Venezia Giulia

3. Villa Russiz Merlot Collio Graf de la Tour (2008)

« Prev Next » 3 of 10
This Merlot is a bit stubborn about releasing its aromas, but it responds well to decanting. I suggest two hours if you have them and can resist sipping that long. Unusual for varietal Merlot, which tends to linger in the red fruit zone, there are blackberry and black currant aromas here. The tannins caress and the acidity is quite tame for Friuli. Drink now to 2016.
