Refosco 2013

Native grapes

Varietal

Refosco dal Peduncolo Rosso 100%

Over the centuries Friuli Venezia Giulia has witnessed many invasions, and the roots of the Refosco seem to be aware of the rich history of the land expressing it in its grapes.

Just like the people of Friuli Venezia Giulia, Refosco has a strong character; it seems introvert and austere but once you get to know it better it reveals all its generosity.
