2009 Venezia Giulia Rosso


2009 Venezia Giulia Rosso Kante - Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant



Edi Kante’s scattered vineyard holdings on the Carso plateau total over thirty small parcels along the Italy–Slovenia border. While most are planted to white, Kante also grows a bit of Terrano, Merlot, and Cabernet Sauvignon destined for this quirky and delicious rosso. It receives near-identical treatment to his whites: native yeast fermentation, aging in neutral barrels, and unfiltered bottling. Tasting the Carso’s limestone through red-tinted glasses is fascinating: just like Kante’s whites, it is lean, bright, and salty, with surprising aging potential. –Anthony Lynch
