Vignai da Duline Friuli-Venezia Giulia Refosco 'Morus Nigra' 2014
Headed by Lorenzo Mocchiutti and Federica Magrini, Vignai da Duline farms seven hectares in Italy’s Friuli region, implementing a holistic, chemical-free approach to their farming. Grapes are hand-harvested and sorted, with fermentations executed naturally. The 2014 ‘Morus Nigra’ is made from organic fruit, aged 11 months on its lees in oak; complex and aromatic, with flavors of dark fruit, white pepper, and spicy, floral undertones.
The most fascinatingly diverse wine nation on earth, with more indigenous grape varieties than can be counted and a productivity rivaled only by France, with which it is perpetually neck-and-neck.
