The red-blooded vine,
graphite turned into wine.
Those who don’t know this wine well, define it as “honest and sturdy”. Definitely honest! It is also generous and reveals great depth. Never predictable, ours reveals graphite, leather and redcurrant. Sipping this wine is like walking into the underwood filled with lively aromas. It is wild! A tenacious, sincere and sturdy wine that will lead you to the sensory destination. And you will end up far, far away: on the flying carpet of aromas there are wild blueberries, marasca cherries and cloves that become more prominent with age.

The grapes are de-stemmed and are left to macerate for a long time. During this period, fermentation is assisted by regular remontage, delestage and air mixing. Once racked, the wine ages for several months before being bottled.
Earth, graphite, a deep and full-bodied wine that is all about its land. This wine has a deep ruby red color and offers a warm nose of bramble, marasca cherries, and violets. In the mouth it is full and surefooted. The long persistent finish is fruity and recalls wild red berries. Refosco is a native wine that leaves its mark in a visceral, lasting way!
It goes well with charcuterie and cheeses, meat-filled Tortelli, game, and braised veal shank and roast potatoes.
