Di Lenardo "Ronco Nole" Red, Merlot/Refosco/Cabernet Sauvignon, Friuli, Italy
March's Wine of The Month
The Di Lenardo Vineyards Estate has been making wine in Friuli since the 1800's and produces quality wines from its five large family owned vineyards situated in Ontagnano, in the heart of the Friuli region, from a rented vineyard close to Aquileia and from some “controlled” vineyards in Manzano.
This Italian red blend has a complex nose of baking spices, bacon-y smoke and a hint of anise. It is full bodied with tart berry fruit and no harsh tannins.
