Another stunner from cult producer Zidarich, made from indigenous Friuli red grape Terrano, a variant of Refosco.
Fresh, almost wet-slate nose with hints of wild red berries and brambly fruit. Terrific belt of acidity reinforced by mineral stoniness (soils in this part of Friuli are very high in iron), red-cherry fruit and a lingering finish. The wine is light-bodied and deceptively easy drinking.
Fun fact - in Friuli it is sometimes prescribed by doctors to cure digestive problems as well as to patients who need iron!
