Red fruits and violets are up front on the nose, with an easy to drink tannin structure and mid palate weight. Raspberries, plums and a herbaceous character are accompanied with some tobacco. If you like lighter styles of red that are also deliciously fruit driven, this will be your jam. In fact, I believe everyone will love this wine; it's easy to drink due to its mid palate weight that's heavier than a Pinot Noir yet lighter than a Coonawarra Sauvignon.
A great dinner party wine; or for those who don’t want something overly complex. Overall, a bit of a crowd pleaser - Jeremy.
The winery relocated in the early 2000's to San Quirino, a village to the west of the Italian region of Friuli. This region is characterised by the Pordonese Dolomite ranges. The terroir is much like a mountain valley floor, with cool winds and constant temperature. This combination ensures great acidity, minerality and a fruit driven element. Russolo wines are created with quality in mind, hand picked, with careful wine making practices that preserves the characters influenced by terroir and the grape varieties selected.
