Wine type: red wine IGT - Calabrone.
Vintage and alcohol content: 2012 - 13°
Region: Buttrio/Premariaccio, Colli Orientali del Friuli DOC.
Grape/blend: 70% Refosco, 10% Schioppettino, 10% Pignolo, 10% Merlot.
Type soil: limestone marl.
Colour: intense ruby red.
Aroma: the nose is filled with chocolate, coffee, spices and mature red fruit.
Tasting notes: the palate has considerable power and grip while maintaining elegance. Calabrone will surely benefit from additional cellar time, at least 5 years.
Serving suggestions: with dry extract levels near or greater to those of most Amarone, this is a big red wine for robust dishes. Serving 18°C.
