2020 Martissima Collio Rosso Friuli 750 ml

Availability: In stock (5)

Marta Venica literally grew up alongside the vines of her family’s winery, Venica & Venica. For all intents and purposes, the Venicas are the first family of Friuil, having been making wine in the cool hills of the Collio since the 1920s. Marta’s Collio Rosso is made from a blend of the native Friulian grape Refosco and  Merlot. It falls somewhere between peppery northern Rhône syrah and juicy Beaujolais in style. Alhough the red wines of Friuli have a reputation for being inky and dark, Marta’s wine is elegant, lively, and bright. The previous vintage received a score of 90 points from Vinous Media: "The 2019 Rosso, a blend of Merlot and Refosco, is dark yet perfumed with nuanced peppery herbal tones, red currants and smoke. This is soft-textured with a pretty mix of red berries lifted by bright acidity and mineral tones. It tapers off dry with a spicy kick and leaves the palate stained in concentration." (Apr 2022)
