Rosso del Postiglione

First produced in 1962 as the result of a bet made by Giampaolo Perusini who even then believed in the potential of the red wines of Friuli, this wine immediately won a gold medal at the Wine exhibition of Corno di Rosazzo. It is presented again today, the same blend of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon confined in barrels of french oak, with the same label figuring the coachman by Vernet chosen by Giampaolo Perusini – a great lover of horses – in 1962.
