Bastianich “Vespa” Rosso, 2010, Friuli, Italy

12 Jan

DSC03190A blend of Merlot, Refosco, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc from northeastern Italy’s Friuli region. New-world in style, lushly fruited and accented by the spicy earth notes common in Friulian reds. Crushed flowers, raspberries and tobacco linger on the polished finish. Try this stunner with slow-braised beef short ribs and creamy, buttery parsnip puree. $42
