Expert's Choice: Friuli reds

2 of 18

Miani, Merlot-Refosco 2007
Hard to find; only 8,000 bottles are produced. A big wine, still tightly bound, intense and intricate. The aromas and flavours are broad and deep. Alcohol is high, but integrated. Decant for a good while and drink now if you must, but I’d wait at least two years. 18.5/20pts (95/100pts)
