IGT delle Venezie
We cellared this wine for the past 3 years and enjoyed it with a rich potroast we cooked yesterday. This blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir and Refosco exhibits aromas of plum, black cherry, coconut, chocolate and oak tones. Being aged for a few years, the color was medium red with a slight orange tint on the rim. The wine was very leggy in the glass. It is dry and fruity with a very generous style. Flavors of plum, sour cherry, cinnamon and toast kept it lively and interesting. The wine had a long, smooth finish. We bought this at Pete's in Bellevue for about $20 back in 2004.
