Fusco - La Roncaia - Red Wine
Why we like it:
Its shades of garnet-red charm us, the intensity of its mature, complex nose amazes us, its soft, elegant tannins capture us. Fusco is an excellent wine made in limited quantities from a selection of the best Merlot grapes from higher vineyards on the hills of Nimis. The accurate grape-drying and the careful vinification are followed by the ageing in oak barriques for over 18 months.
Appearance: ruby red with garnet tinges.
Nose: a multi-layered aromatic set, merging typically herbaceous scents and intense perfumes of red berries, in a fine, clean and elegant complexity.
Palate: structurally balanced, warm, smooth, appropriately tannic; La Roncaia Fusco is an engrossing and long-lasting wine.
Either tasty red meat or savoury first courses.
