Santomas Mezzo Forte is a blend based of Refosco (local variety grape), Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Wine was aged for 18 months in big barrels from Slavonian oak. It has a ruby red colour with a blue hints. Very complex nose; mocha and coffee, smell of roasted meat, raspberry, strawberry and scent of juniper berries. Medium body wine; fresh and elegant, with many layers. Very long aftertaste, full of fruit. Mezzo Forte goes well with red meat; from very simple ones (like dark poultry meat, pork or beef) to more aromatic ones (lamb, venison). It is a good companion to dishes with red radicchio Trevisano (risotto, pasta,..) or nice to drink with slices of prosciutto, smoked ham or other meat delis.
