2010 Miani Rosso: No Refosco, No Merlot - Just Rosso

No Refosco, No Merlot - Just Rosso
2010 Miani Rosso

"Simply on another planet" -Antonio Galloni

Quality at Miani top-to-bottom is insanely high, but his reds are consistently the most coveted and rarest of his wines.

2010 is a special vintage for the Rosso: in 2010 Miani didn't release any of his single vineyard reds, so all of the juice went into the Rosso bottling and elevated it in a big way. Keep in mind that his single vineyard Merlots sell for $220+ and his Refosco Calvari goes for somewhere around $380-425+.

2010 is a favorite edition of Miani's Rosso. It shows the commanding intensity of Miani, but simultaneously shows an uncanny mineral cut and refinement.

When a small parcel became available, I jumped on it. I'm happy to offer Miani's 2010 Rosso for $99.95. Since this is so limited, the offer is only going out to Miani buyers.

The 2010 possesses a finely-tuned balance, managing at once both power and precision, decadence and restraint. Antonio Galloni calls the 2010 Rosso, "beautiful and classy to the core." And we couldn't agree more.

Miani's wines are ruthlessly intense, fastidiously sculpted. Shockingly so. This helps give you a sense of what Galloni means when he writes, "Enzo Pontoni is simply on another planet... In the best years his wines frankly have no peers in Italy."

Please be warned that this is a very small parcel and that allocations and a sellout are very likely. We'll do our best, but if you're interested, this is something to jump on.

Antonio Galloni: "In 2010, proprietor Enzo Pontoni did not bottle any of his top reds. Instead, readers will find the 2010 Rosso, a gorgeous, entry-level offering that captures plenty of Miani intensity, but with less richness than is typically found in the flagship wines. Mocha, espresso, black cherries, licorice and savory herbs flow from this nuanced, chiseled Friulian red. The 2010 Rosso is beautiful and classy to the core. It will also drink well upon release."
