In a region famous for its whites (Friuli), Michele Moschioni has been daring enough for the past 40 years to only make reds. A pupil of the godfather of Amarone, Giuseppe Quintarelli, Moschioni's reds are legendary. A blend of merlot and cabernet sauvignon, this wine is a new take on a classic. Full-bodied wine with sweet tannin and plenty of extract to balance out the whole structure. It is juicy and rich with a surprising lush style.
