I can't believe I found so many inks that are great and working together very fine with the Moleskinepaper. This ink is red more red then the Noodler's Cayenne I have in my Lamy Vista. Noodler's Cayenne is more orange-red. The Visconti is more red-red. The flow is great in my Visconti Van Gogh (fine nib).

Visconti van Gogh (fine nib) filled with Visconti Burgundy.
The ink is more red then the Noodler's Cayenne which is more orange-red. I like the color very much.
The ink does not bleedtrough the Moleskine paper in combination with this pen.
It takes about 25 seconds to dry, which is normal I think.
Their is no visible shading or feathering. It is a great ink on this beautiful paper.
The older men (I think it was the father) told me to glue the bottem of the bottle to the holder on the floor to avoid that it tumbles. But the young owner of the store denied it and told me to do it like in the picture. Well both work I think.
The bottle is shaped that way so you can get a lot of ink out of the bottle.
I can give this ink a thumbs up for Moleskine-friendly ink. It does not bleedtrough in combination with this ink or in combination with the Monblanc 146 (Le Grand) wich I also tested. Some pen's or nibs give some dots.
Visconti's Italian fountain pens inks offer a rich writing experience. Smooth flowing, intense colors come in Visconti's distinctive bottle with a bakelite-styled top. 40ml per bottle.
