Blueberries, blackberries, sweet violets and a dusting of autumnal spice wafts up effortlessly from the 2015 Rosso Sossó Riserva. It’s rich, powerful and fruit-forward in the glass, flaunting its spicy oak influence, yet doing so with style. Silky and elegant, this impresses with a more savory, almost-salty display of mineral-tinged red and black fruits which coasts over a vibrant core of acidity, nearly masking the 2015’s youthful tannins which steadily build. There are depths yet unseen here, tapering off structured and full of potential, with crunchy wild berries, tart citrus and hints of clove lingering long. The Sossó is a blend of Refosco dal Peduncolo Rosso, Merlot, and Pignolo from Friuli Colli Orientali that spends eighteen months refining in barriques, expertly integrated.

Region: Friuli-Venezia Giulia

Friuli-Venezia Giulia is an important Italian wine region, situated high in the northernmost parts of the country, and close to the Slovenian and Austrian borders. As such, there is a considerable Germanic influence on the wines of this region, with varietals such as Riesling growing alongside Italian classics such as Pinot Grigio. The finest wines of Friuli-Venezia Giulia are considered to be those which capture the alpine essence of the region, with its pine scented terroirs and crystal mountain waters which run down from the mountains. There are also several interesting lesser known grape varietals processed in Friuli-Venezia Giulia, which gives the region a unique wine culture which the local wine makers are immensely proud of, and which makes the region a fascinating one to explore.

Country: Italy

It isn't difficult to understand why Italy is famed not just for the quality of its wines, but also for the vast variety and range of characteristics found in the wines there. The terrain of the country varies wildly, from the lush rolling green hills and valley of Tuscany, to the sun drenched rocky coasts of Sicily, the mountainous and alpine regions of the north, and the marshy lowlands of the east. Italy really does have a little bit of everything. Combine this huge range of landscapes with an almost perfect climate for grape cultivation, and you have a country seemingly designed for viticultural excellence. The results speak for themselves, and it is clear to see that wine has become an inseparable part of Italian culture as a result of its abundance and brilliance. Each village, city and region has a local wine perfectly matched with the cuisine of the area, and not an evening passes without the vast majority of Italian families raising a glass of locally sourced wine with pride and pleasure.
