Expert's Choice: Friuli reds

3 of 18

Zidarich, Terrano-Refosco, Carso 2009
Low alcohol, fresh fruit aromas and a complex but not concentrated palate. Spice on the nose and palate and high tannins and acid, creating a hollow in the mouth that is filled with ripe, bright fruit. Intense, but without weight, and intriguing minerality. Elegant. 18.5/20pts (95/100pts)
