It is an international grape variety difficult to grow which
in friuli has found a region where to perform outstandingly.
It is ruby red in colour and,on the nose, it shows a sensation
of raspberry, berries, and in some vintages, violet.
On the palate, it tastes fresh, dry with a softly bitter finish.
It matches well with short maturing cheese, delicate meat,
stewed fish, such as eel.
