After fermentation, the wine is aged for 3-4 months in stainless steel tanks.
An indigenous variety, the most valuable sub-variety within the large “Refosco” family, it is one of the most appreciated types of Friulian red-berry wines. Already famous in the 1700s, in recent decades it has had a considerable diffusion throughout the region, replacing other “Refosco” vines, certainly more productive but undoubtedly of less merit.
Wine with an intense ruby red colour, with time it takes on elegant garnet hues. It is characterised by a vinous-fruity aroma, with a distinct hint of blackberry, raspberry, blueberry and wild berries. The flavour is firm and full, dry, slightly tannic and pleasantly bitter.
