REFOSCO DAL PEDUNCOLO ROSSO

D.O.C. (Controlled Designation of Origin) Friuli Colli Orientali

Bottle Notes

The delicately de-stemmed grapes are macerated for 6-8 days so as to allow optimum extraction of the colouring, tannic and aromatic part from the grape skins (everything is promoted by frequent pumping over of the mass)  The delicately de-stemmed grapes are macerated for 6-8 days so as to allow optimum extraction of the colouring, tannic and aromatic part from the grape skins (everything is promoted by frequent pumping over of the mass)  Once the alcoholic fermentation is over, we proceed with the addition of selected bacteria to promote the start of the malolactic fermentation.   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.


Tasting Notes

 

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.
