NOTES BY OUR SOMMELIER
👁 a beautiful intense ruby red;
👃🏻 on the nose it expresses complexity and richness of aromas: small red and black fruits, currants and blueberries above all, along with a slight spiciness;
👄 on the palate it is very warm, soft, full-bodied, well balanced and round. Very pleasant.
An intense and complex wine, which goes well with fish first courses, barley soups, fresh cheeses, San Daniele ham and the classic Friulian dish of frico with polenta.
WINE-MAKING AND REFINEMENT
Grapes of the indigenous grape called Refosco dal peduncolo rosso, produced in the vineyards of Aquileia in the Colombara area, harvested towards the third decade of September and dried in an attic. Only when it reaches the right degree of ripeness does the de-stemming take place and then fermentation in wooden barrels for about 20-40 days depending on the vintage. It is then separated from the pomace and decanted for a few weeks, and then aged for 12 months in 3-hectolitre barriques, 12 months in large barrels and a further year in the bottle. Not filtered.
