Why we love it
Another award winning red wine from a multy awarded wine maker.
A blend of Merlot and Refosco del Peduncolo rosso fermented and aged in small oak barrels. Rosso Scuro, dark red in Italian, is a red wine with an intense ruby colour and a nose that shows aromas of red fruits and spices with underlying hints of vanilla. Full bodied, in the mouth is structured, well balanced, velvety and persistent.
The Rosso Scuro is a Bordeaux blend wine, where the international Merlot grape is blended to the Friuli native Refosco del Peduncolo Rosso grape for a great wine.
This red wine has won plenty of international and Italian awards, including the coveted 3 glasses from the Gambero Rosso.
The artisan who made it
Roberto Scubla is an amazing person who is very passionate about his wines. He took a big risk and left a safe job in the bank for an uncertain future amongst the vines and he has truly succeeded in what he was trying to achieve. His winery and vineyards are located in the Colli Orientali area of Friuli, north east of Italy, near the Slovenian border, where he grows native grapes like the Friulano and Verduzzo but also grapes that have found an ideal environment in Friuli such as the Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon or the Sauvignon and all his wines have plenty of character and elegance.
