Refosco - La Roncaia - Red Wine
Why we like it:
Radiant in its deep garnet red tinged with ruby, perfumed of soft fruits, showing a big palate. Refosco is a great Friulian wine made from the finest grapes of the native Refosco dal Peduncolo Rosso. The grapes are late-harvested in October from the hills of Nimis and a certain amount is skillfully allowed to dry before vinification. Aged in oak barriques for over 18 months.
Appearance: deep garnet red with ruby glints.
Nose: intense, complex, with earth scents recalling wild essences and wild berries, spicy and toasted fragrances, up to ethereal perfumes.
Palate: warm, velvety, tannic; a wine with a great body, intensity and tasting persistence.
Game or grilled meat.
