Refosco dal Peduncolo Rosso
The grapes are harvested during the first week of October, and left to ferment in stainless steel tanks for about two weeks. The wine is frequently pumped down the cap and then undergoes several délestages, made in order to remove from the skins colourings and harsh tannins. After this passage, having the wine reached its ideal alcohol content, the wine is drawn off the pomace, and left to ferment into stainless steel vats where it starts cleaning thanks to a natural static decantation. Thanks to the winter temperatures, the microbiological balance is reached, and the only thing we have to do is to carefully draw off the lees in order to obtain a clear wine. Refosco is bottled late in the summer following the harvesting, with a further refining in glass for a month.
Alcohol content: 13 % vol.
Intense ruby red colour with purplish hints.
The aroma is intense and vinous, with subtle notes of Morel. The palate is elegant and dry, soft, with dense tannins integrated into a presence of sweet fruit and highlighted by a good acidity.
The ideal match for grilled meat, game and mature cheese.
Serving temperature 18-20°C
