Tasting notes
Vespa Rosso is uncommonly fruit-forward and structured for a "cold weather" red wine, and yet it retains many of the spicy, earthy notes that characterize Friulian reds. The extra effort made in both the vineyard (sharply reducing yields) and the cellar (small batch fermentation in tonneaux) helps elevate Vespa Rosso beyond the ranks of everyday reds.

Rating
 Wine Spectator 88 points (Jun 15 2015)
Medium-bodied and juicy, this lightly spiced Merlot offers abundant ripe black cherry fruit, as well as licorice string, orange zest and Kalamata olive hints. Fresh and balanced. Merlot, Refosco, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. Drink now through 2020. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 2,000 cases made.-AN
 Vinous 89 points (Jun 2015)
The 2011 Vespa Rosso is a delightful Friulian red with expressive aromatics and gorgeous overall balance. Rose petal, dark red cherries, sweet tobacco, mint and spices lift from the glass in a refreshing, perfumed red to drink now and over the next few years. Gentle floral and spiced notes reappear on the finish, adding lift.

Wine maker notes
Vespa Rosso is our estate red which balances power and finesse through a combination of indigenous and international varieties. A wine with ripe fruit and a slightly new-world flavor profile. The lush palate makes it drinkable upon release, though it is structured enough for aging.

Food pairing
Steaks and braised red meats.
