Tazzelenghe

D.O.C. Friuli Colli Orientali

Tazzelenghe is a very tannic wine with such high acidity. Despite its roughness in youth, Tazzelenghe mellows and gains elegance with prolonged ageing and after a few years acquires a very distinctive personality. It's a wine that generously rewards those who know how to wait.
