Gjulia Ambrata Ovest

This Fruili-based craft brewery, which farms its own barley and wheat crops, was founded by the Zorzettig brothers, Marco and Massimo, after prior experience in winemaking. A top-fermented red ale, it leads with aromas of lightly toasted malt, molasses bread, brown sugar and light stone fruit, with a slightly herbal edge to it all. The palate is rich and smooth, medium in body and boasting deep flavors of caramelized sugar and candied orange rind. There's a subtle warmth and peppery kick to the close, which helps to keep the palate refreshed and lifts the mouthfeel's slightly sweet and full impression. Lauren Buzzeo
