Vespa Rosso is uncommonly fruit-forward and structured for a "cold weather" red wine, and yet it retains many of the spicy, earthy notes that characterize Friulian reds. The extra effort made in both the vineyard (sharply reducing yields) and the cellar (small batch fermentation in tonneaux) helps elevate Vespa Rosso beyond the ranks of everyday reds.
Wine Advocate 91 points - The 2010 Vespa Rosso is a blend of Merlot (50%), Refosco, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. The wine pours into the glass with a darkly extracted appearance and black aromas of tar, prune and olive. Despite the enormous intensity of this wine, it also achieves a steady level of harmony with plush richness that wraps thickly around the finish. There are no rough edges here. This is a velvety, opulent red with excellent results this vintage. Drink: 2014-2020. (Dec 2013)

Wine maker notes
Vespa Rosso is our estate red which balances power and finesse through a combination of indigenous and international varieties. A wine with ripe fruit and a slightly new-world flavor profile. The lush palate makes it drinkable upon release, though it is structured enough for aging.

Food pairing
Steaks and braised red meats.

Producer
The Bastianich winery, founded in 1997, strives to understand the history and culture of Friuli-Venezia Giulia and take it to a new level. Restaurateur Joseph Bastianich with his mother, the renowned chef Lidia Bastianich, bought a vineyard in Buttrio, a town in the Colli Orientali DOC. The family is very precise in their winemaking, controlling yields so that each individual vine produces one bottle of wine. They employ traditional manual methods in the vineyard and create wines that express the character of the land.
