Marega 1998 Holbar Red (Friuli Venezia Giulia)

At 80% Merlot, 15% Cabernet and 5% Gamay (of all things), this is clearly not your average Italian red wine. It's got some raisin, spiced cherry and oak aromas, which are followed by baked apple and cinnamon flavors. It's dry and woody, with developed but integrated tannins. Multifaceted and different, and definitely not New World in style. A bit too stretched and acidic to rank higher. Michael Schachner
