Bastianich Vespa Rosso Colli Orientali di Friuli 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

The Bastianich estate red which balances power and finesse. 50% Merlot, with ripe fruit and a slightly newworld profile, the lush palate makes it drinkable now, though it will age well for the next 10 years. Uncommonly fruit-forward and structured for a \"cold weather\" red with spicy, earthy notes that characterize Friulian reds. Sharply reduced yields and small batch fermentation adds depth and complexity and elevates Vespa Rosso into the ranks of world-class red wines.
