Rosso Moschioni Colli Orientali del Friuli DOC, Moschioni
Rosso Moschioni Colli Orientali del Friuli DOC, Moschioni
A deep purple red in the glass. On the nose, an explosion of warm enveloping perfumes and aromas of berries, ripe plum with a slight hint of rose that gives a gentle seductive note. Strong and intense on the palate with unripe tannins; an enveloping impact with intense aromas of leather, roasted coffee and hints of cocoa to complete the intensity of the wine. Decisive and complete, this wine needs time to fully express its full potential.
