Moschioni Colli Orientali del Friuli Pignolo Italy 2003
This is a monstrous wine! It is dense in flavor and packed with complexity. There is a richness of fruit, given the hot vintage and the producer’s preference for this wine style and tendency to let fruit hang a long time. The fruit is still quite youthful and displays aromas of prune, fig and blackberry. Leather, fallen leaves and cigar round out the package. Drink through 2020.
