Refosco dal Peduncolo Rosso DOC - 2021
The Refosco dal Peduncolo Rosso grape derives its name from its red stems that distinguish it from other Refosco varieties. Literally, it translates as Refosco with the red stem (peduncolo rosso). It is a late-ripening variety and is known for producing wines that are full-bodied with high levels of acidity. This deeply colored wine is robust with discernible tannins yet polished and supple with black fruit flavors and almond notes. It has a long and pleasant finish marked with notes of plums and currants. The Refosco’s prominent acidity, typical for this variety, makes it a good complement to a wide variety of foods.
