Culinary Icon Benchmark Wine
Culinary icon Joseph Bastianich doesnt do anything halfway, from his Michelin-starred restaurants to his judgements on the show MasterChef. So its no surprise that his Venezia Giulia estatea multi-Tre Bicchieri winner that Robert Parkers Wine Advocate called A rock star winery with international pedigreehas crafted a 2015 Rosso of such power, nuance, and creativity.
The Vespa Rosso is rooted in Merlot, but with a healthy dose of the regions native Refosco, contributing a full body and powerful structure. Grown in the Colli Orientali del Friuli DOC, which Forbes called the crown jewel of the region, its complex aromas feature blackberry and rose, hints of licorice and herbs, adorning the rich mouthfeel and elegant tannins.
Vinous fell in love with the Rossos light on its feet quality for such a big powerful wine, and awarded the 2015 the Vespa Rossos best-ever score. James Suckling piled on the praise saying, This is always a very serious red for the money, and 2015 could be one of the most exciting editions.
While the northeastern Italian region of Friuli-Venezia Giulia is renowned for its full-bodied, racy white wines, in his book Vino Italiano , Bastianich noted that many regional winemakers call Refosco, Friulis grape of the future. Try this generous 2015 Vespa Rosso and youll be convinced that the future is now, and that the regions reds deserve the same praise as its whites, if not more.
Pairing Ideas For This Friulano
This wine would pair well with almost any strong flavor, especially things like asparagus, Brussel sprouts, spinach, etc. I think it would pair well with a lot of the high fatty meats we have here in the southeast. Additionally, people recommend friulano with things like shellfish, lean fish, and pasta or cured meats and hard/aged cheeses. You should refrain from opinions that limit your pairings with this Bastianich Friulano, as I feel itâs much more versatile. Experiment on your own as I have been doing, and you may find some great options.
