Merlot / Refosco
Fall has started in the Netherlands. Though it was a wonderful weekend with lots of sun we tasted these lovely red ones from Il Rocal from Friuli. We tasted the Merlot and the Refosco.
Merlot 2013: This wine was the favorite of the evening in our wine club. Ruby red wine with in the nose fragrant hints of dark forest fruit. The taste is pleasant, dry and very soft with a slightly bitter aftertaste. It’s like an angel walking over your tounge.
Refosco 2014: Dark Ruby color that tends to purple. The aroma is intense and pleasant with hints of red dark fruit like blackberries, wildberries and forest fruit. The taste is full, warm, with delicious hints of red forest fruit, the wine has a pleasant tannin structure that emerges in a warm lingering finish.
