A wine that expresses velvety sensations of black fruit, sweetened by notes of cherry and plum, tanned tobacco and antique wood. This Refosco dal Peduncolo Rosso - an autochthonous varietal wholly native to Friuli - yields a harmonious elegance, with its sauve bouquet, minerality and full-bodied presence on the palate, followed by a sustained finish.
Friuli DOC Aquileia
Alture - Molin di Ponte
100% Refosco dal Peduncolo Rosso
colour: intense ruby red with brilliant purplish hues at the rim.
bouquet: typical notes of small red fruits - blackberries, raspberries, blueberries - dominate the nose. Warm hints of plum and cherries preserved in alcohol harmonize with light balsamic notes. On the finish, lively spicy mingle and merge with the olfactory reminders of liquorice, vanilla, coffee and chocolate yielded by lengthy ageing in wood.
flavour: the palate is full, rounded and boldstructured, with an excellent balance between the natural acidity of the Refosco and the prominent softness of the tannins, rediscovering fruity and balsamic chords that meld and harmonize with a spice refrain on the finish.
